The Golden Age of erotic art bronze vice versa sculptures was roughly from the 1880’s through the 1920’s.
Most were from Vienna, Austria and were made and hand-painted (polychromed) at the Bergman foundry.
The stamp of the Bergman foundry was Namgreb.
After WWII the foundry rekindled their bronze business often employing the orignal workers and
continuing to use the early molds from foundry sculptors.
Today the foundry has ceased to cast any of the erotic or naughty pieces.
