Austrian Bronze of a Swimmer, Artist Signed, circa 1920



This very unusual bronze depicts a swimmer showing off his form. Artist signed "Thuss", the Austrian artist, who was well known for his attention to subject matter and quality art work. A great gift for the right athlete or anyone who appreciates art. There is specifically an area on the bottom part of the front side where something can be etched in, as in making this a trophy.
