a rare antique cold painted authentic Vienna or Wiener Bronze cast in the traditional lost wax technique (cire perdu).

by FRANZ BERGMANN,

the renowned workshop which created great pieces with the highest quality level and the highest collectors and resale value!

The polychrome painting (several different layers) is called cold painted since it was not fired.
A fabulous bronze rarity w a proud pug chauffeur is having the honor to ride one of the motor vehicles from the very early days.
The detail is excellent. They did not have a steering wheel yet but a crank. The car does not look like one but still more like a carriage. The license plate says AUSTRIA .

The wheels spin.

Remember that

AGE: c. 1920s

CONDITION: Good, however, some minor paint losses. Original paint, no restoration, no repairs, no touch ups!

The bronze has been cleaned professionally.
Franz Bergmann (1838 - 1894) was a professional chaser from Gablonz who came to Vienna and founded a small bronze factory in 1860. His son Franz Xaver Bergmann (1861 - 1936) inherited the Company and opened a new foundry in 1900.

From that time the Bergmann bronzes were marked with the "jar" mark and outstanding works were signed "Nam Greb" (Bergman spelled backwards). Many of the bronzes from the 1900s were still based on designs by Franz Bergmann the elder.

The piece bears the Bergmann logo B in the urn or amphora and is marked AUSTRIA - We can send you valuable information about hallmarks of Vienna Bronzes, just contact us.

Let the images speak for themselves. - I tried to capture the detail with my camera by shooting many photos and close ups and recommend enlarging the images by clicking on them!
