How lovely to find a sculpture of a hippo - not many of us get to see them in the wild!
It is one of a collection of exquisitely sculpted miniature animals. Each is carefully finished using the traditional method of patination, the bronze has rich depth of colour which further develops over time.
Beautifully boxed, this fine bronze is a precious work of art and very collectable.
It is 5cm long and it is 2cm at its tallest.
