20th Century Austrian Bronze standing English Bulldog, Franz Bergman (Mangreb)

About the Item

This 20th Century Austrian Vienna Bronze depicts a standing English Bulldog, attributed to Franz Bergman (Mangreb). Crafted with exquisite detail, the piece showcases a warm dark brown patina, characteristic of Bergman's work. Signed by Bergman and bearing a foundry stamp "J.B. Deposee Registered Paris Bronze" underneath, this bronze exemplifies the craftsmanship of Franz Xaver Bergman, renowned for his Vienna Bronzes. Originating in the mid-19th century, Vienna Bronzes gained prominence with 40-50 producers, particularly in Vienna, during the early 1900s. Specializing in the cold painted technique, these bronzes were meticulously layered with "dust paints" directly over the bronze, resulting in lifelike details. Unlike traditional firing methods, cold painted pieces were colored during the cooling process. This bulldog sculpture sculpture remains in good condition and captures the essence of Bergman's style and craftsmanship. Measuring: 7cm in height 5cm in width 13cm in depth
