A whimsical anthropomorphic Fox working hard at his desk…


…in the office at a “wooden” black desk apparently writing a letter. There is even an old banker’s lamp and a rotary phone. Fabulous detail.

Even though we tried our best, the photos do not do justice to the original of this unusual humorous bronze.



Scroll down or more Austrian foxes.




ca. 1 3/4 “ (4.5 cm) tall and wide. Depth 1 1/2 “ (4 cm)


Good. No restoration, no repairs, no touch ups! Some paint loss.


Fleur de Lis (or Lily Mark) and AUSTRIA, the other Bergmann Mark according to Ernst Hrabalek’s book, meant for the French market.


ca. 1930's

LINK to our collection of:


Franz Bergmann (1838 – 1894) was a professional chaser from Gablonz 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.

From that time the Bergmann bronzes were marked with the “jar” mark and outstanding works were signed “Nam Greb” (Bergman spelled backwards). Many of the bronzes from the 1900's were still based on designs by Franz Bergmann the elder.
