5 years ago I posted one of my antique bronze hare sculptures by Auguste Nicolas Cain. A short while later I was able to acquire a second sculpture that I never got around to posting. Here are the two hare sculptures shown together. These whimsical sculptures have always intrigued me as their detailing is so amazing. These sculptures are solid bronze and measure 4 3/4" tall and the bases are 3" at their widest point.
Auguste Nicolas Cain (1821-1894) was a Parisian sculptor and his sculptures are known for their amazing detail and these are just very fine examples of his work. These are quite unusual sculptures for Auguste Cain, as most all of his sculptures were of wildlife in their natural habitat. So, something as whimsical as these was very unusual for Auguste Cain.
Thanks for stopping in for a look at my bronze hare sculptures!!
