Rare masterful bronze bowl um 1900 by famous Ukrainian-Austrian sculptor Peter Tereszczuk (1875 in Wybudow, Ukraine - 1963 in Vienna). The high point of the work of Peter Tereszczuk lay in the years between 1895 and 1925 in Vienna. In collecting circles he is well-known for his bronze figures , which patinated typically brown, 15-30 cm highly and is occasionally with ivory in corroding provided (for example ivory-carved faces). They are at the lower, rear edge with the signature P.Tereszczuk (single type character) and the stamp of the foundry Tereszczuk and Ullmann provided (T and U as capital letters inserted into each other and squarely frame). As representative of art nouveau are by him not only small sculptures, but also a set of figural over-formed utensils developed (for instance inkstands). His bronze sculptures are acted by art auctioneers European-wide and until America.
