The term ‘Vienna Bronze’ refers to very fine cast bronzes from the period of around 1880 to 1930. The naturalistic small sculptures depict human figures, often with exotic features, humans and animals, humorous illustrations as well as erotica. The bronzes were so fashionable that there were 80 companies in Vienna which concentrated on these products. A large number of significant artistic works was melted during the world wars to meet the metal needs of the artillery, thus the bronzes are now not only treasures but also rare collectibles. The most famous manufacturer of Vienna Bronzes was the Manufactory Bergmann. (ala)
