Just thought I'd share a few photos of this remarkable circa 1900 bronze inkwell I picked up last week. It's signed (engraved in the bronze) by the artist/sculptor but I can only use four photos and so I didn't choose that shot. These photos were made by the seller and really don't do it justice!
I'll try to take some GOOD shots of it myself and post them when I get a chance...
Measures just over 12 inches long and the man is about 6 inches high. The "rock"/inkwell, the man, the "pole" and the base are all different tones of bronze, and the workmanship and detailing are truly superb.
Here's some info about the artist/sculptor:
Karl P. Kowalczewski was a German sculptor (1876 Schwarzenau to 1927 Berlin), he studied at the academy in Berlin as master student of
He won the 1909 Rome prize of the academy, and was also a member of "Reichsverband bildender künstler Deutschlands", "allgemeine Deutsche kunstgenossenschaft" and "Berliner bildhauer-vereinigung".
Thanks for looking!
