A captivating Vienna bronze of an animated King Cobra, by Franz Bergman (early 20th c). The snake hisses as it prepares to strike at the viewer. This large original example is cold painted in fine detail. Marked with the Bergman amphora, AUSTRIA, and KF (for Karl Fuhrmann). Fuhrmann worked as a sculptor for the Bergman foundry during the early 20th century, and is known for his animalier/animal bronzes. Guaranteed to be an original early 20th c Vienna bronze by Bergman. This piece certainly captures the eye!
Condition: In good original condition, with minor wear to some areas of cold paint on the body and tongue.
Measurements: 7 in long x 6 in high x 3 3/4 in deep (18 cm x 15 cm x 9 cm).
