Rheinhold's Monkey Bronze (Cottbus, Germany; private owner)

Height of bronze (without plinth/pedestal): ca. 10.3 cm.

 

This is the smallest "monkey" version of Gladenbeck's production line (see the Gladenbeck Catalog, Nr. 1194). Also of interests to the reader may be recent casts of this size by the Bildgießerei Seiler  (reproduced from original Gladenbeck pieces).
