Austrian patinated bronze Labrador Retriever. The Labrador realistically cast in exceptional detail holding its head high in positive posture, ears partially aloft paying attention to the scenes around it. The dog with fitted collar arounds its neck latched with a lead hoop attachment. Circa 19th century this piece is unsigned but bears the quality of a Bergman figure and possibly came from the factory.
Lot Notes: A bronze sculpture is a piece of art made by pouring molten bronze into a mould, before leaving it to solidify. Once solidified the mould is removed and you are left with a piece of bronze sculpture. The quality of each bronze can differ depending on the technique used and the detail of the mould. Bronze is an alloy metal made from a combination of 88% copper and 12% tin.
