Bronze Animals

I see these little bronze or brass animals around at antique fairs and fleamarkets all the time and they also sell well enough on ebay - but what are they.


You see dogs, horses, elephants, leaping dear, hedgehogs and others - from the style they look like 1960's in date. Some might be Austrian bronzes others look more holiday trinket brass. Names such as Hagenauer and Walter Bosse have been suggested - but are they ?


Here are a few more - including my favourite mad Giraffe.
