Austrian erotic bronzes are usually very amusing and this example is no exception. To the casual viewer, it's a lady relaxing with a cigarette. On closer inspection, she is hinged, and very revealing. Diminutive size at 4" long x 2½" wide x 1¾" tall. Unsigned. Excellent condition with original paint.

I just sold this model last year and was lucky enough to acquire another one this year. Carl Kauba was Austrian, but he was totally enamored with the American West. His bronzes are close to the quality of American sculptors Remington and Russell, but at a fraction of the price.  Kauba bronzes frequently are polychromed, which wasn't done by Remington or Russell. This example of an Indian in a canoe is moderately rare and shows nice polychrome in his headdress.  10" long. Signed. Excellent condition.

I love Carl Kauba Indian bronzes.  It's amazing how an Austrian sculptor who probably never visited the US could make such great bronzes equal in quality (but not price) to the wonderful bronzes of American sculptors Remington and Russell.  Kauba bronzes frequently are polychromed, which wasn't done by Remington or Russell. This example of an Indian with a canoe is moderately rare and shows polychrome in the Indian's headdress.  10" long. Signed. Excellent condition.
