A Very Fine & Rare Viennese Bronze Musical Box Table Lamp Of an Erotic Nature By Franz Bergman



The cold painted bronze depicting a closed tent, has button released double doors, one with a smirking cupid, opening to reveal a young blood ardently courting a not unwilling déshabillé female comfortably draped on a chaise longue, set in a room decorated in the Louis XVI manner; the music box is key operated. Signed to the reverse, ‘Namgreb’, the inversion of ‘Bergman’.
Austrian, Circa 1900

Franz X. Bergman (1861-1936)

Followed in the footsteps of his father, who ran a small bronze foundry, inheriting the family business in 1900, and adding many small figures, both in patinated and cold painted bronze.
