Signed "Berndorf" on back of base, Vienna c. 1900-15
Item # 402TCJ09P

This fine Austrian antique bronze sculpture captures a young boy as he delightfully looks over the waters edge for fish. His home-fashioned fishing pole, a long branch with twine wrapped around the length, rests beneath him to be easily accessed upon seeing a large fish. The details are positively exquisite, the form expertly chased and filed to accent every fold of clothing, the bottoms of each shoe, the wrinkled cap and the fine lines of the feather in his cap. The Berndorf foundry, operating in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, was renowned for their highly complicated original sculptures - most were completed by nameless artists employed by the firm, allowing them utmost quality control and resulting in some very fine work. Several Austrian bronze sculptures by Berndorf are discussed in Bronzes: Sculptors and Founders (Berman, vol. II).

This is a wonderful find for serious collectors of Austrian cabinet bronzes.
