CW friends do know my bug obsession...
Here is another one! LIZARDS!

This cute little Vienna bronze (Austrian cold painted very detailed bronze figurines) comes from Belgium eBay, it is unmarked, but as you can see, painting quality is far better than modern ones... I'd say it is around 1920, but only a guess :-)

Size:
2.1/4" or 5.8 centimeters long,
1.1/2" or 3.8 centimeters wide.

21 grams.

    If I put that out on my gallery, my lizards would probably try to mate with it !

    Oh he is wonderful I thought it was real at first look . A person might think it was real if you were wearing him/her :-) Love it xo

  13. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago

    Always glad to see you on my posts, thank you!

    Dear Mani, hi! Yes he/she is so lifelike!
    I'd love to wear it, but don't want to alter the little fellow :-)

    Hi Kyra,
    Really neat lizard. As you say, the colouration, painting is very good indeed. It looks incredibly lifelike, especially the way his head is held up.
    Did I miss R. altogether, a search brings zilch?
  15. pops52 pops52, 1 year ago
    This is amazing, I can see why you love to collect them!
  16. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
    Put him on an open windowsill and see if a predator comes by to check him out....only if you feel like it and can rescue him....Love it!
  17. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
    Yes Gillian, so lively! Thank you for loving him too.

    Pops! Thank you for your nice comment and love :-)

    Valentino, surely a magpie would kidnap him! Won't take the risk ;-); missed you my friend!

  18. Celiene Celiene, 1 year ago

  19. nutsabotas6 nutsabotas6, 1 year ago
