Rare Franz Xaver Bergmann Bronze Turkey Signed Kauba


Rare Franz Xaver Bergmann Bronze Turkey Signed Kauba

This proud bird was modeled by Carl Kauba and bears his signature, "C.KAUBA" across the tail feathers. It was cast by the Bergmann foundry between 1900, when Franz’s son Xaver assumed control of the foundry, and 1931. The Bergmann hallmark, introduced by Franz Xaver, appears under Kauba’s signature along with the single word "AUSTRIA".

This is one of the pieces acquired by Karl and Ilsa Fuhrmann in the early 1950s and cold painted by the Fuhrmann Company and, thus, carries the “KF” logo as well as the Bergmann marks.Bergmann cast several turkeys but this is the only one I'm aware of that was cast from a model by Kauba. Other similarly sized Bergmann turkeys have listed on for over $4000.00.

The bronze is 4.25" high.It is solid and quite heavy for the size. There is no damage or repair to the bronze and the paint is better than 99% intact. A few small paint chips are evident in the photos.

Buyer pays actual shipping and insurance costs. Returns are accepted only in case of misrepresentation, but our guarantee of authenticity is without time limit.
