SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Auctionata's online live auction on Friday, April 4 2014, at 6:00 p.m. CET (Central European Time), in cooperation with the American antiques marketplace Ruby Lane, is a true highlight for collectors of world-famous Vienna bronzes.
The very finely cast, small Vienna bronzes from the period around 1880 to 1930 are often naturalistic sculptures depicting human figures, animals, humorous illustrations and erotica. The auction includes close to 100 lots, among them several works by the most famous manufacturer Bergmann – whose name stood for high-quality Vienna bronzes for decades – such as the charming 'Animal Ferris Wheel' and the illuminated 'Bedouin Tent.' Also offered is an exquisite table lamp by the Viennese sculptor Carl Kauba, a beautiful Venetian equestrian statue, and a life-sized Chihuahua, all exemplifying the fine craftsmanship and artistic precision of these rare collectibles. View the entire collection.
