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.
