Victorian Anthropomorphic Boxing Frogs



SKU: 2979 Category:


Rare Cold Painted Austrian Bronze Anthropomorphic Boxing Frogs by Franz Xaver Bergmann Circa 1900. Franz Xaver Bergmann (1861–1936) was the owner of a Viennese foundry who produced patinated and cold-painted bronze Oriental, erotic, and animal figures, the latter often humanized or whimsical, humorous objects d’art. Bergmann was noted for his detailed and colorful work. He signed with either a letter ‘B’ in an urn-shaped cartouche or ‘Nam Greb’ – ‘Bergman’ in reverse. These marks were used to disguise his identity on erotic works. It measures 13 x 13cms and stands approx. 7cms tall and is in excellent all original condition. Highly collectable piece for the serious collector.
