Bronze ‘Rockman’ Inkwell & Pen Tray
Beautifully sculpted and finely cast bronze study of a young, bare-chested man working in a stone quarry. A heavy hammer and a pickaxe lie on the ground at his feet as he strains to move the large boulder he’s carrying.
With a lovely patina to the figure, this is an ideal bronze for a desk, incorporating as it does a pen tray and concealed inkwell with ceramic insert.
Super detail to the man’s body, the shoes he’s wearing and even the discarded tools.
From the noted sculptor Ludwig Eisenberger, whose work is illustrated in the 4-volume Berman set, and signed by him on the side. Also bearing the incised date of 1907.
The width at the front is around 17.5 cm and the depth is 17 cm.
