A most unusual pair of late 19th century bronze figures depicting caricatures of a heron and mallard duck, each with human bodies including torso, legs and arms, and tail feathers with a bird head, each figure is dressed in theatrical costume whilst carrying out a stage performance.
These most interesting and amusing bronze figures are mainly finished with a dark brown patination whilst in contrast the head and feathers are gilt.
Each bronze is mounted onto a stepped rectangular bronze base which is further enhanced with a green figured and polished marble plinth with a suede leather protective lining to the underside.
French, circa 1880
Dimensions of the Mallard Duck
Height 20.5 cm x width 13cm x depth 9 cm
The heron is slightly smaller but has the same matching base and plinth.
