Antique Orientalist Vienna Cold Paint Bronze Arab Smoking Pipe Sculpture C. 1900:
ANTIQUE ORIGINAL COLD PAINTED VIENNESE BRONZE SCULPTURE OF AN ARAB SMOKING PIPE
VIENNA, AUSTRIA LATE 19TH CENTURY
Up for offer is this delightful and highly collectable original cold painted bronze sculpture. Possibly cast after a model by the celebrated Austrian sculptor Franz Xavier BERGMAN ( 1861 – 1936 ). A cold painted bronze small sculpture featuring an Arab sitting on a carpet, smoking a long pipe and studying a book ( possibly the Koran ). Simply a beautiful piece, finely painted by hand and plenty of charm. A finely cast truly joyful ‘object de vitrine’ executed in the finest and most detailed manner. A cold painted small bronze skillfully modeled with great realism and attention to the intricate details. The meticulous detailed casting is remarkable and the colors are still quite vibrant and firm. This wonderful piece measures approx. 2.5 in. ( 6.5 cm. ) in height by 2.5 in. ( 6.5 cm. ) in length by 2.5 in. ( 6.5 cm. ) in depth and is in very good antique condition with just some minor losses on the paint consistent with the age. No restorations, no touch-ups. Bearing on the underside the initials B K within a rectangle as illustrated. Possibly a Bergman cold painted bronze sculpture. Many Bergman bronzes in small scale do not show any markings or signature. A rare model cast in Vienna, Austria late 19th Century - early 20th Century. Original and authentic, not a modern reproduction. A magnificent example of a Viennese cold painted bronze.
CERTAINLY A DELIGHTFUL AND WONDERFUL ADDITION TO A COLLECTION OF FINE COLD PAINTED VIENNESE BRONZES
