Cold Painted Arab Merchant on Carpet - Bergman stamp
A stunning and exquisite bronze sculpture of an Arab man on a carpet selling wares, holding one statue in his hands and another three stand beside him. The figure is exceptionally well made and incredibly detailed. The base bears the Bergman "B" stamp and the word Austria. The fine craftsmanship is visually stunning and has to be seen to be appreciated. The piece has been delicately hand painted and the shape of the carpet is delightful - with creases and folds adding even more detail. The piece has retained much of its colour considering its age and is in good antique condition with no damage. This is an extremely rare figure by the renowned Franz Bergman that is seldom seen.
The piece measures approximately 28.5cm x 11.5cm and the Arab stands approximately 7.5cm tall.
