"The Cat’s New Clothes - Hand Painted Vienna Bronze Cat - Stamped"
Some of the most popular sculptures created by the Viennese bronze manufactories at the beginning of the 20th century were humanised versions of animals. The small bronze animal figurines became famous largely due to their imaginative scenic presentation. Painted by hand and elaborately made, the miniature bronze pieces, which were often only a few centimetres tall, told stories from the everyday life of humans. This way, cats, mice, dogs, pigs and frogs became the main protagonists of this extensive world of ideas. Yet the motif of the cat was the one which was implemented in hundreds of different ways. Some of the oldest and most famous pieces are the Vienna Bronze figurines The Famous Viennese Cat Band, Hot Chestnuts, Coffee House Piano and Street Musician. The cat is said to have been the first animal that was used for those humanising motifs. In the case of this figurine, the small, hand-painted bronze cat took up the human trade of a tailor and proudly presents its design to the observer.

Vienna Bronze is the collective term for the popular small bronze sculptures that have been manufactured in numerous Viennese foundries during the late 19th and early 20th century. These miniature bronze sculptures became especially famous as decorative items during Germany’s “Gründerzeit”. Thematically, Vienna Bronze statues focus mostly on erotic scenes, human figurines of distant cultures (often people from the Orient, Indians or blackamoors), and imaginative depictions of animals.
