Likely Grant Tour items, this pair of bronze Neptune figures each hold a Scallop or clam shell, together forming a tazza. The dark marble base measures 7" x 3" x 3/4", and the entire form is 5 1/2" at the highest point (the section where the two shells are joined). Both bronze figures have good quality detail and a nice dark patina, and the marble base is charcoal with lighter striations. The base has a few small chips on one bottom corner and a few other tiny spots along edges...

Finely detailed and painted, this bronze sparrow measures 5 1/4" long and is stamped "Austria" on the body. The paint is in excellent condition, with good color remaining, and the bird is remarkably life like in form and stance. One toe on the right foot is bent slightly upward, though it stands firmly, and the tip of the beak is missing some paint. A very nice example of this genre of Austrian bronzes, this bird looks like he would fly off at any moment.
