Rare Antique Snake Charmer Galvano Bronze Clad Bookend Incense Bowl Art Statue:
$125


Rare and unusual decorative piece depicting a turbaned and bearded snake charmer, seated cross-legged in front of his basket, playing on his pipe with the snake clearly responding.
I don't know precisely what this was intended to be. Incense bowl is my best guess.
No maker's mark, but definitely bronze-clad (actually, copper) as evidenced by the wick indentation on the bottom. Likely Galvano Bronze, circa 1920s.
Condition is excellent. No breaks in the cladding, nothing dented or mashed. But there is some wear and scuffing. The finish has aged to a dark patina accented with verdigris. NOTE: the camera flash makes the verdigris appear to be a much brighter green than it actually is. The inside of the bowl feels rough, so it has been put to some kind of use.
The piece is 6 inches tall; 5 inches front to back; 3 1/2 inches side to side. Weighs 1 3/4 pounds.
US shipping only. USPS parcel post, insurance and delivery confirmation.
