Posted by admin On January 16, 2022
Antique Old-English-Bulldog/Early-Boxer Vienna Bronze Figure/Figurine. Extremely rare antique small bronze figure, depicting a realistic Old English Bulldog or Early Boxer with collar in a very unusual pose, playing with a stick. Well sculpted and detailed piece made of solid bronze. Unsigned or marked, but very probably made in Vienna, circa 1900. 2-½ inches (6.5 cm) long x 1-¾ inches (3 cm) height. Weight 4.76 Oz 135 gr. Was a dog breed, now extinct. It was taller and thinner than actual English Bulldog. In England, the passage of the “Cruelty to Animals Act 1835″ caused a decline of bull-baiting and dog fighting, although the activity, as well as cripple Bulldogs continued for many years. Somewhat worn with minor markings and scratches here and there. Bent up front left leg see pictures. Otherwise very fine to excellent overall condition with very nice natural bronze patina. Photos are part of description. Rest of the world. We do not sell reproductions or modern items. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Metalware\Other Collectible Metalware”.
