This exceptional early 20th century cold painted Austrian bronze portrays a Middle Eastern tradesman showcasing his wares within a beautifully crafted mihrab-shaped display unit. Meticulously hand-chased, the figure exhibits intricate surface detailing, highlighting the craftsman's skill.

The presence of the renowned Bergman 'B' signature within an amphora vase attests to its authenticity and artistic value. This exquisite piece serves as a testament to the rich cultural and artistic exchanges of the era, capturing the essence of the Middle Eastern trading heritage with its masterful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Arguably the most famous of the Viennese cold-painted bronze artists, Franz Xavier Bergman (1861-1936) is celebrated for his great attention to detail and wonderful vibrant colours.
