About

Interesting bronze figurine: Dancing Lady It is a finest figurine, most probably it is a Viennese bronze item. The lady dancer standing on square carpet balances on her left leg whereas right leg is raised. She is clad in short dancing dress with spaghetti straps, both arms are raised. Woman's head is covered with very special headwear. This bronze figurine is of stunning liveliness (excellent manufacturing quality) ! Signed: Letters 'B.Zach' existing (visible on carpet - next to figurine's left foot, at backside). Most probably it is a Vienna Bronze, but related signature isn't visible here since the figurine is attached to black & square marble base / signature of Vienna Bronze Bergmann could be at reverse side of carpet. Designer: Bruno Zach (1891-1935) The well-known Austrian artist and designer Bruno Zach was born in Vienna and worked in Austria as well as in Germany. He immigrated to the USA in the year 1935. Bruno Zach was one of the best known designers of Art Deco figurines in period of 1918-1935, having emphasized design of dancers and nude figurines of stunning liveliness. Beyound that, Zach specialized in design of cowboys and native Americans during his later creating period / circa 1930-1935. - Bruno Zach's artistic activity in Austria is strongly connected with Vienna Bronze manufactory; numerous stunning figurines were made by order of Vienna Bronze firm having been designed by Bruno Zach! Detailed information's about Viennese Bergmann manufactory: Franz Xaver Bergman (or Franz Xaver Bergmann / 1861-1936) was the owner of a Viennese foundry who produced numerous patinated and cold-painted bronze Oriental, erotic and animal figures, the latter often humanized or whimsical, humorous objects d'art. Noted for his detailed and colorful work, and signing either a 'B' in an urn-shaped cartouche or 'Nam Greb' - 'Bergman' in reverse. These marks were used to disguise his identity on erotic works. His father Franz Bergmann was a professional chaser from Gablonz / Bohemia 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. Many of the bronzes from the 1900s were still based on designs from his fathers workshop.
