Original Handmade Bronzes: Imported from Austria

Walter Bosse in his workshop

These brilliant figurines by Walter Bosse represent seminal works in Viennese brass. Created between the 1920s and 1960s, Bosse’s unique figurines are as intriguing today as they were decades ago, and have served as a source of happiness and inspiration to collectors around the world. Bosse’s friendly and optimistic figures also show a sense of keen observation and character. Their expressiveness and economy of detail tell a story deeper than that of mere collectibles. Handcrafted in solid brass and hand finished to a golden sheen with black patina, this style, originated by Walter Bosse together with Herta Baller, was known as the “Black Golden Line.”

Recent increases in the collectors’ market of Bosse’s work spurned a Renaissance in Vienna and reissues in brass of many of Bosse’s original designs. Production is now located in a small, sleepy village near the Austrian-Hungarian border where Walter Bosses’s legacy is carried on and upheld with the same long-standing knowledge and hand crafted quality.
