Antique C19th Century Austrian Cold Painted Bronze Witches Cat, Possibly Bergman For Sale
Here on offer is a wonderful
antique Austrian cold painted bronze witches cat, possibly by Franz Bergman, dating to
the late 1800s
was not a sculptor himself as he is often described, instead he hired many
anonymous sculptors, hired temporarily by his workshops. At the turn of the 19th/20th
century there were about 50 workshops producing Vienna bronzes. ‘Cold painted
bronze’ refers to items cast in Vienna, but were made from bronze or spelter.
They were decorated with several layers of ‘dust’ paint, this technique has now
been lost. The colour was not fired, giving the name ‘cold painted’ and was
done by women at home in a cottage industry set up.
This great little character is
made to be free standing. He has very chips to the paint. He is skilfully
modelled, with his back arched and hair on end. It has ‘geschutz’ embossed on
the belly of the cat.
is offered in good antique condition, it measures about 5cm by 5.9cm in height
and weighs 52g.
Please see my pictures for the details of the condition.
