View Full Version : Bronze questions

I have 2 bronzes & no idea what if anything they are worth. One is by Remington, Mountain Man, #19 / 100??
The second is a cowboy on a horse pointing a pistol in the air -- his shirt is a greenish color & the name is hard to read -- could be "Kaulo", or "Kahlio" or "Kaubo". Does anyone recognize this? Thank you, J Rooney

If you have any pictures of the items you could post that might go along way in helping to determine a value. Also if you could tell us the size and any history of the pieces. Have you have them a long time?

Here are two things to look for to reassure yourself further that a particular sculpture is not an original Remington bronze: 1. foundry mark. Most copies bear no indication of where they were made. Authentic sculptures are made with the foundry's name clearly cast into the bronze base. 2. In very few instances will an authentic cast be mounted on a marble base. Copies are frequently mounted on them.
There is always great curiosity about numbering. Original bronzes are numbered sequentially. They were made and numbered more or less according to the demand, i.e. 1,2,3, etc. not 1/100 or 19/50. Many copies are misleadingly numbered in this second "3/100" fashion. The location of the number on original sculptures is usually under the bronze base.

If they are quality copies they very well might be worth some $. Post some pictures here of the sculptures
