Polar bear paper weight.


Polar bear paper weight.
This is my favourite pieces, I have seen so many beautiful things in my time buying and selling but this is the best by far. A desk weight made of bronze and quarts I cannot risk taking it off its base to look for the foundry mark, so it must go down as unsigned, probably French from the turn of the last century. It is an absolutely charming subject of a Polar bear hunting on an ice flow that is breaking so the bear has flattened itself and is peering over the edge. Beautifully cast and so tactile, I have never seen another and I have been looking for over twenty years.
