A pair of Viennese cold painted bronze figurines, mid to late 19th century. Each girl is sitting on a chair with a wonderful smile on her face. They both have a kitten playing with them under the chairs. One little girl also has a kitten on her lap. These endearing bronze statues are believed to date to the Victorian era, ca. 1860s to 1890s. They weight 13 pounds together, 6 1/2 pounds each. The girl with her arm in front of her shows some wear but is in very good condition given her age. The cold painting on the toes is wearing. The second girl with her arm behind her has some damage, she is missing the stick that would be in her hand, her skirt shows damage and her toes show wear. The measurements are 12 inches high by 8 1/2 inches at the widest point.
The most exciting thing is that I purchased these Bronzes from the estate of Patti Page, the well know singer with her own TV show. She made "The Tennessee Waltz" popular, along with "How much it that doggie in the window" So many hit songs were credited to her. She pass away within this past year.
I would rather not separate the pair but if you are interested in purchasing only one please contact me.
Together they will make fabulous bookends or stand alone as works of art.
