This rare sculpture of a Indian scout is the main work of Josef Drischler (1838 - 1917). Drischler was born in Rinteln (Germany) and worked in Berlin. Several of his works have been in art exhibitions. A sculpture of Herzog Otto dem Strengen by Drischler is in front of the Bomann museum in Celle and another statue of General Moltke was placed on a public place in Reichenbach (1901). The Indian scout was made by the famous Gladenbeck company around 1900. The condition is good with some wear to patina. It could be possible that the connections between arms, one leg and body are old repaired, but I think it's not to bad, as this cast has still a lot of charisma. The bronze is excellent worked out. The height is 10“ and the length is 10 inches.Footnote: The Gladenbeck foundry was founded by Carl Gustav Hermann Gladenbeck in 1851 and was run by various family members and shareholders until the early years of the 20th century. In 1857 the company relocated to Berlin, and in 1888 became Aktien-Gesellschaft H. Gladenbeck und Sohn; directed by Hermann Gladenbeck and sons Oskar and Alfred.
