A superbly modeled Austrian cold painted figure of a dog attributed to Franz Xaver Bergmann and dating from around 1900. The dog the breed of which we have not been able to identify stands with its tail curled and resting on its back with a Finnish Spitz like face and pointed ears. The dog has a rough long haired coat and is painted in tones of brown and red with excellent detail. The dog is not marked.
In good condition considering age.
