Condition: Pre-owned
Price: $785.00


Vienna Bronze Gallery presents:

 

An adorable orchestra with gnomes created by the notable workshop of Franz Bergmann.

 

Ten musicians perform for you. The orchestra is complete and consists of the conductor, a singer (both with sheet music), and accordionist, a pianist with his grand piano, a flutist, a cellist, a violinist, a drummer, a cymbalist and a triangle.


It is hard to paint such miniatures. Collectors of Austrian bronzes know that they used tiny brushes and often worked with a magnifying glass. In extreme cases they even had brushes with just one hair. Often the painters were women, who also worked for the porcelain industry, and they had an academic education.


The orchestra is a true gem for the collectors of gnomes and of miniatures. The picture below shows an orchestra of larger scale gnomes we once had.

This is a rare antique cold painted Vienna or Wiener Bronze cast in the traditional lost wax technique (called ‘cire perdue’) by FRANZ BERGMANN the renowned workshop that created great pieces with the highest quality level and the best collectors and resale value!

 

Other outstanding works were signed “Nam Greb” (Bergmann spelled backwards), mainly EROTICA and ARAB & ORIENTALISM bronzes. These marks were used to disguise his identity on erotic works. 

 

 

As reputable collectors for four decades we offer only authentic Vienna bronzes and fight copycats.
