Bronze Dragonfly by Varnier*
Birds and Animals – now Insects too.
Delightful bronze dragonfly modelled having just alighted on a bending bullrush stem. Very natural and with lovely detail, particularly to the wings.
Signed ‘Varnier’ on the stem and also marked ‘bronze’, it is set on a stepped portoro marble and onyx base.
On close examination when turned over, it looks as though the dragonfly has been re-attached to the stem of the bullrush at some stage, but this is not at all obvious on display.
A little under 25 cm in height with the base just under 13 cm long
