I just acquired this pair of bronze ducks. I've researched these and found them in two online galleries. They were made in France between 1900 and 1919. I was impressed with the incredible detailing, right down the perfectly detailed web feet. They are signed by the artist, but I don't recognize the signature. Perhaps someone here on CW might be able to identify it for me.
These are lifesize and rather heavy sculptures. They measure 13" long, 7 1/2" tall and 7" wide. They each weigh 11 lbs and 12 lbs respectively. All that these sculptures needed was a thorough cleaning as they had about 100 years of collected dust embedded in every feather.
Thanks very much for stopping in for a look!!!
