Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this stunning pair of original circa 1920 Austrian Vienna cold painted bronze bookends depicting a hound going into a warren and fox and two cups coming out of one

A truly stunning and exceptionally rare pair, these are just about the most beautiful representation I have ever seen

They are of course Austrian, from Vienna, cold painted solid bronze, I have seen birds in this form before, many of them but never the fox’s and a hound

The patina is period with various imperfections to the finish, nothing you wouldn’t expect from 100+ years of use. We have lightly cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom
