Lovely signed Bronze plaquette depicting the head and shoulders of Richard Wagner. The Bronze is signed as F. Stiasniy and measures 2 3/4" x 2 3/8" and is mounted on a beautiful piece of Blue/green agate measuring 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 3/4". Franz Stiasny (1881–1941) was a Polish medallist and sculptor, whom Forrer (BDM) notes was working in Vienna prior to the First World War.
Very fine quality! Stiasniy produced a large series of bronze portrait medals of important writers, composers, musicians and historical personages in rectangular formats. The piece dates to around 1910. Wilhelm Richard Wagner 22 May 1813 – 13 February 1883) was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor who is primarily known for his operas.
