This rare and heavy early bronze sculpture of a penguin and her young baby tells a little tale of the life of these wonderful birds. Protective of their young, the penguin sits on a snow capped rock, cradling her baby.
Likely early 20th century. Unsigned. Detailed and heavy, the bronze sculpture sits on a substantial black marble base. Rich dark bronze patina. Both the sculpture and the base have minor surface wear and patina. Bronze has no chips, cracks or breaks. One tiny edge of marble has a tiny nick on it's edge as shown.
