Birds & Animals

The majority of bird and animal sculptures offered are from the Art Deco period, when the power and grace of certain creatures inspired the animalier artists of the day to create wonderful pieces, some of which are extremely realistic and other quite stylised. Panthers, lions and leopards were popular subjects, sometimes modelled with a fierce attitude when depicted with snarling faces and bared teeth. Our favourites however show them in quieter mood, either resting or stalking. Antelopes and deer were also favoured and you only have to see one or two of the better examples to see why. Dogs too worked well, especially the greyhounds, borzois and German shepherds. Birds were usually depicted realistically and some of the ceramic pieces can be very striking, often with beautiful paintwork. We hope you enjoy looking at our selection of birds and other animals.
