Cold Painted Figure of Cats Rowing A Boat
Fantastic cold painted figure, modelled as 4 cats rowing a boat. It is unmarked but I believe it to be Austrian in origin and date from the late 19th Century. It is such a sweet comical piece and it has been very carefully modelled. It has still got its original paint and all the oars are present.
It is in excellent original condition. It has been lightly cleaned and displays very well. There are no major damages just some areas where the paint has flaked or rubbed and some general light scuffs around the boat. It displays beautifully.
I don't believe the piece is made of Bronze, rather something like lead because under the boat on areas where the paint has flaked it is showing a grey colour underneath rather than a bronze colour.
Approximate Measurements :
Length : 6"
