Vienna Bronze Tobacco Box with Dogs Pugs by Franz Bergman'n', circa 1890-1900

About

Gorgeous Vienna bronze tobacco box made by famous manufactory Bergman(n), circa 1890-1900. The hinged lid of bronze box is decorated with most lovely sculptured dog figurines made of bronze, too - these are pugs playing with a roll as well as with a matchstick. At front side of box a stamped inscription is visible: '50St.' which means 50 pieces. - Obviously it is a tobacco box where cigarettes had been stored. The dog's figurines are of stunning liveliness (the details are excellently sculptured)! Signature B (BERGMAN(N)'s FIRM SIGN) is well visible at reverse side of box which has a wooden liner attached to inner side (lid included). Measures: 9.5 x 10.0 cm (= 3.74 x 3.93 inches) height: 8.0 cm (= 3.14 inches) circa 1890-1900 Detailed informations 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.
