Large Vienna Bronze eagle
1423/17: Franz Xavier BERGMANN: a large and most impressive "Vienna" COLD-PAINTED BRONZE of an eagle alighting on a rock. The bird is depicted with wings fully outstretched in a realistic and animated style, typical of Bergmann's work. All of the original detailed paintwork is intact, and it is fully signed ("B" in an urn) and numbered underneath. It's large: 15ins wide and 12ins high. (38 x 30.5cms). *Bergmann, originally a fine metal worker, inherited the Vienna foundry from his father in 1860. His work is recognised for its great attention to detail and wonderful vibrant colours.
