This is a tiny broze, marked "Made in Austria" ,with an "R", in a box.
Measures 4" in height, very delicate,yet a nicely done piece!
This I've had for some time, just decided it was time to show it off!!
Any help on identifying the maker would be great. Thank-you!
Bernie

    This is made by Richard Rohac of Austria, circa 1950-60. He worked for Hagenauer for a short period, before he opened up his firm circa 1948. Many collectors seem to think these were made by Rena Rosenthal, but they are wrong. I have over 50 African style Richard Rohac figures, heads and busts in my collection. Some models are common , others are scarce, this one is common.

    Thank-you so much for the information Amanda A.A.!! Would you know what a common one is worth? Where were they sold? Again, thanks, very helpful!

    I have a large book 13 1/4 inches tall by 9 1/2 tall. It is called " ART DECO OBJETS DE VERTU " MARIO POIANI is the author and pub by Booking International and is the finest art deco book I have ever seen on Hagenauer . Pretty much the whole book is of these small pieces. I remember these pieces used to be quite expensive back in the 1980's and never seen too many of them, of course I was not particularly looking either at those prices.

    This is a second printing for 1991. Hardcover, fine printing of large photos. Text in English and French. The original was a different publisher in 1968 first printing.

    I believe the first printing book of 1968 may have come out of Italy

    Quittenbaum in Germany is an auction from Germany I have bought before from. They have had whole auctions of the smaller pieces. The better pieces like you will find in the book would normally be sold by a finer dealer and nowhere near the 150 dollars you were quoted. The finest pieces can easily reach over 10,000 by auction.

    Thank-you so much Phil for the info , you are definately an assett to this great site with your depth of knowledge. I can't find the same figurine, but there are some similar in style. Interesting to learn more about this elegant little piece of art. Is it listed in the reference book you mentioned? Thanks again Phil!! Cheers!!

    Actually no it isn't and when I said the best pieces - I meant by far in superiority and in style, they are exquisite, so not many, MOST ALL pieces from that auction NEVER made it near the book. The book is huge and most pages have one photo, if you send me an address at my email which is on my home page I can email you some photos from the book.
  16. pickrknows pickrknows, 11 months ago
    I will do that Phil, thank-you.

    Hi Phil, I've messaged you several times, not sure if your e-mail address is correct?
  18. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 11 months ago
    Maybe I cannot remember. I will scan some pages tomorrow likely. Phil.

    Ok, thanks Phil.
