This exceptional and monumental antique terra cotta sculpture was crafted at Vienna’s renowned Goldscheider manufactory. This enchanting sculpture, model #1225, depicts a charming genre scene of a young boy fishing. Originally part of a series of children designed by Haniroff, one of Goldscheider’s renowned artisans, this endearing piece is quintessential Goldscheider, representing both the aesthetic appeal of the African physiognomy blended with the deep color, and avant-garde design of the Art Nouveau period. Goldscheider was among the most dominant ceramic manufactories of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, employing some of the most gifted artists working in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The quality and condition of this sculpture is exemplary of Goldscheider at its best.
