This small bronze depicts a mouse or rat, it's paws and tail wrapped around an egg, which it holds while in seated position. It measures 2 3/8" high, and is a solid casting. Unsigned, there is a round slightly recessed area near it's left from paw, which is lightly visible in the photos. The body of the mouse is incised to represent fur, and the tail and feet are nicely detailed. The patina is very dark, and may be slightly worn, as it appears darker in areas that would not have been handled as much.
