This charming figurine dates to the turn of the century. It features a majestic bronze bull charging straight ahead and leaping over a fence covered with brush. Perhaps his owner treated him too harshly or perhaps there are several cows on the other side of the fence. Whatever the case, the detail on the piece itself is quite unexpected in a bronze of this nature. One can make out tufts of hair on the bull's head, the hooves on the bull's feet, muscles in the bull's legs, and even texture in the bull's tail. The bull rests on a pedestal of the same bronze, which is designed to look like bare earth. A wonderful piece for adding character to any desk or mantelpiece.
L: 5 1/4 in. W: 2 1/2 in. H: 3 in.
