About the Item

Classic early 1950s Austrian Bosse cat Figurine Collectible. Nice addition to your room or just for your collection of Austrian bronze items. Found at an estate sale in Vienna, Austria. About: Walter Bosse was an Austrian designer known for his contributions to the Mid-Century Modern style. He was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1904 and passed away in 1979. Bosse was a versatile artist who worked in various mediums, including ceramics, metalwork, and sculpture. Bosse's most famous works are his animal figurines, particularly his brass and bronze animal sculptures. These pieces feature simple, abstracted forms with clean lines and a stylized aesthetic. His animal figures, such as hedgehogs, ducks, and birds, were often designed as ashtrays or small decorative objects. They were highly popular during the 1950s and 1960s and continue to be sought after by collectors today. One of Bosse's most iconic designs is the "Hedgerow" series, which includes small hedgehog figurines. These hedgehogs are made of solid brass and have a charming and whimsical appeal. Another notable design by Bosse is the "Black Golden Bird," a small, abstract bird sculpture made of black-painted brass with gold accents. Bosse's work is characterized by its simplicity, elegance, and playfulness. He had a keen eye for capturing the essence of an animal's form with minimalistic details. Bosse's designs often feature a combination of geometric shapes and organic curves, resulting in a harmonious balance. Walter Bosse's work is highly collectible and has been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. His designs have stood the test of time and continue to be celebrated as exemplars of Mid-Century Modern design from Austria.
