Lovely old metalwork camel statue or figurine, with a definite Middle Eastern or Orientalist theme, un-marked as to maker or country of origin. The camel is in resting pose aside his large bowl and base, the prior owner has remnants of an old candle in the bowl. the metalwork is quite nice, with designs on all the pieces, even to the touches of color of the saddle and bags on the camel's back and Eastern symbol on top of the saddle. This piece measures 9" long, 6 & 1/2" deep front to back measured at the wide bowl, and 5 & 3/4" tall. He is in good structural condition with obvious wear to the metal and the colors from age. Just a wonderful old piece that we think is fairly rare, well made and very heavy for the size. With no markings it is hard to tell, but it could be a Vienna cold painted bronze , or may be cold painted on iron.
