An excellent early Austrian wildlife bronze.

The polychrome figurine depicts an otter with his prey.

A great snapshot from nature cast in sold bronze more than a century ago.

The otter is made of solid bronze, is marked ‘Geschützt’ and has quite some weight for the size. He has been created by one of the fifty to eighty workshops that existed around 1900 with perfect attention to the detail.

There is very little paint loss despite the age. The figurine must have been kept the entire time in curio cabinets by the generations of owners.


We are extremely glad being able to offer a valuable creation thanks to a collector who commissioned us to offer this and other exceptional old Austrian bronzes.

We would like to emphasize that there are currently few really good Viennese bronzes on the market, especially with regard to the many counterfeits, which are now offered everywhere, particularly on ebay. Some of these ignorant sellers confuse the term ‘Geschützt’ with the name of a sculptor or producer. Collectors know that it translates from German as ‘protected’ and stands for ‘copyright’ or ‘patented’. French bronzes marked with ‘deposé’ have the same meaning.

Those, who know us, are aware that we are at war with these scammers.
