Dancing on the carpet by Franz Bergman
A late 19th century original cold painted bronze figurine entitled “Dancing on the carpet” made by Franz Bergman. The paint and figurine are in excellent condition considering the age of this piece. With Bergman’s official mark to the base. He signed with either a letter 'B' in an urn-shaped cartouche or 'Nam Greb' – 'Bergman' in reverse, Stamped Austria. These marks were used to disguise his identity on erotic works. 'Cold-painted bronze' refers to pieces cast in Vienna and then decorated in several layers with so-called dust paint; the know-how for the mix of this kind of paint has been lost. The colour was not fired hence 'cold painted'. A lovely original example of Bergman’s art.
