19th Century Bronze Figure of a Jewish Banker

GINGER TOM'S CURIOUS ECLECTIC
An unusual cast bronze figure of a wealthy Jewish banker or industrialist, dating to the mid to late 19th century, and probably intended as a paper weight. With its exaggerated features and slightly comical air, it has the feel of an Anti-Semitic caricature. Such pieces were common during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It probably originated in Germany or France but bears no maker's marks. It is well cast and has a well aged patina.

This piece is very similar in form to an item held by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum:

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
