Carl Kauba (Austrian/American, 1865-1922)

Native American with a Rifle
Signed "C. Kauba" in the bronze on the back edge of the blanket, stamped and
numbered "GESCHÜTZT/5305" on the drapery on the back l.l., inscribed "694" on the underside.
Bronze with gold/brown patina, height 9 in. (22.8 cm).
Condition: Loss to the tip of the rifle, wear to the patina, dust and dirt to interstices.
Estimate $1,500-2,500

The patina is worn and made shiny by handling over the years, as is noticeable on raised areas of the surface of the work. It appears that the end of the rifle has been broken off.
