We are offering this authentic Vienna Bronze (Wiener Bronze) handmade by the Bermann Company. The object bears the golden "FBW" mark (Fritz Bermann Wien). The object is 47mm tall. About the production of these miniatures. The material of the object is brass.
Achieving such a high level of detail requires a very complex and time intensive production process: At the beginning moulds of wax were created, including drains for air and melted brass. All that was covered with clay. The mould was dried and fired.
At the same time the wax melted and created a hollow space which was later filled with molten bronze. After casting and cooling the ceramic mould was destroyed and the brass core removed. The drains were then taken off and the whole surface was engraved by hammer and punch followed by the very costly and detailed painting.
Please see my other listings as I offer many beautiful miniatures and talismans! Please contact me if any questions occur! A short introduction about the Bermann Company. The Wiener Bronzen were created in the epoch of the Biedermeier where the self-confident bourgeois developed a new culture of living and social life. Very soon the Wiener Bronzen were considered as show-pieces in cupboards, luxurious toys and charming presents.
Every apartment of the Wiener Ringstraße with its splendid furniture demanded for representative pieces of décor and commodity. Mathias Bermann founded the manufactory in the year 1850 in Hernals near Vienna. He began with the production of metal decoration for pipes and started to manufacture animal figures made of bronze. During the World Exhibition in the year 1873 a certificate of recognition for his products was given to him by the Austrian government.Fritz Bermann took over the company in 1927. He had innumerable models being created in cooperation with Viennese sculptors and modellers. The models survived undamaged World War II in the cellar of his house which had been completely destroyed. Today the Bermann Wiener Bronzen are produced exactly the same way as they were produced in the epoch of the Biedermeier where the Wiener Kunsthandwerk had achieved its best performance.
That expresses that with every item of our production you do not only get a piece of splendid tradition of handicraft but also a piece of Viennese history. Charming testimonies to the passion of collecting, Viennese tradition and culture of giving, elegant, grotesque and magic copies of Fashion, fantasy and the genius of the period en detail. These little statues have managed to slip from the 19th century and the early 20th century into our modern life. Sometimes it can also take 3-4 weeks.
