Antique Auguste Cain Bronze Sculpture Chicken Poulet Hen 19th Century For Sale

Antique Auguste Cain Bronze Sculpture Chicken Poulet Hen 19th Century

This adorable bronze chicken is by Auguste Cain and was produced sometime probably between the 1840's and 1860's. Cain, the son-in-law and executor of JP Mene's estate, was a prominent sculptor of bronze figurines and large sculptures in his own right, winning many awards from the time he was a young man. He produced very few of these smaller bronzes after 1868.

During the time he was sculpting these smaller bronzes, his focus often was on barnyard animals, many times placing them in humorous situations. This genre appealed to the Victorian sense of the time.

This precious hen weighs almost a half pound and she is only 3" tall to the top of her tail feathers. She is about 2.5" long. The detail is amazing! You can not only see each feather and ridge on her feet, but you can see expression in her face. She is intent on finding out what is at her feet which appears to be a millet spray. The bronze is in excellent condition.

This would be the perfect gift for the chef, for someone who has recently started keeping chickens, for someone who loves Victorian era European bronzes. I could see this little sculpture on a shelf with the cookbooks in the French blue and white kitchen, on a glass shelf over the window, in a study as a paperweight, etc. etc. This is truly an endearing piece and Cain's pieces are not easy to find.
