As a learned chaser and metall spinner, Hagenauer focused on producing small bronzes, called „Wiener Bronzen" (Viennese Bronzes). They were extremely successful with small bronzes and metal products in the style of the Viennese Secession, which won countless prices and had been shown on many exhibitions. They reduced their designs to their function and abstained from any ornamental decorations. Designs were made not only by Hagenauer, his brother and his children, but also by Josef Hoffmann and varied from the already mentioned bronzes to everyday items such as corkscrews, bookends and inkwells. The designs are all from very high quality and exquisitely crafted, and for a long time, Hagenauer was the only company in the world producing this type of arts and crafts. May their material be a hundred years old, their look is as modern as ever. All pieces have a strong life of their own and each deserves to get admired in a new place.

The most famous manufacturer of Vienna Bronzes was the Manufactory Bergmann. Carl Kauba (1865-1922) The Austrian sculptor Carl Kauba attended the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts, where he was taught by Laufenberg, Waschmann and Schwartz. He later continued his education in Paris. Kauba's polychrome, very detailed and realistic sculptures make him one of the leading 'Viennese bronze' artists. Fascinated by the adventure novels by the German author Karl May (1842-1912), his expressive illustrations mostly show Wild West motifs, like cowboys and Native Americans. His representation of American Indian headdresses, weapons and costumes were rendered with great attention to detail. There is no evidence that Kauba himself has ever been to America. Carl Kauba personally directed the casting of his clay models. Most bronzes from the years 1895 to 1912 were produced for the U.S. market, where they were offered in New York until the 1950s. Today collectors rank Kauba in the same league as Frederic Remington (1961-1909) and Charles Russell (1864-1926), the great portrayers of the American West.

In a dynamic way, the bronze depicts a Native American, who is just about to shoot an arrow with a bow. He is leaning forward on his knee, highly concentrated targeting with his bow to his left. Especially finely executed is the thin thread of the bow, which was originally made of animal tendons. The Native Americans of the Wild West used arrow and bow for hunting purposes and as a weapon. The bronze is in very good condition with slight traces of wear. It is signed 'C. Kauba' and marked 'AUSTRIA' on the plinth in the cast. The dimensions, including the plinth, are 8 x 10.8 x 6.4 cm (height x width x depth). Vienna Bronze The term 'Vienna Bronze' refers to very fine cast bronzes from the period of around 1880 to 1930. The very naturalistic small sculptures depict human figures, often with exotic features, humans and animals, humorous illustrations as well as erotica. The bronzes were so fashionable that there were 80 companies in Vienna, which concentrated on these products. A large number of significant artistic works was melted during the world wars to meet the metal needs of the artillery, thus the bronzes are now not only treasures but rare collectibles. Carl Kauba (1865-1922) The Austrian sculptor Carl Kauba attended the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts, where he was taught by Laufenberg, Waschmann and Schwartz. He later continued his education in Paris. Kauba's polychrome, very detailed and realistic sculptures make him one of the leading 'Viennese bronze' artists. Fascinated by the adventure novels by the German author Karl May (1842-1912), his expressive illustrations mostly show Wild West motifs, like cowboys and Native Americans. His representation of American Indian headdresses, weapons and costumes were rendered with great attention to detail. There is no evidence that Kauba himself has ever been to America. Carl Kauba personally directed the casting of his clay models. Most bronzes from the years 1895 to 1912 were produced for the U.S. market, where they were offered in New York until the 1950s. Today collectors rank Kauba in the same league as Frederic Remington (1961-1909) and Charles Russell (1864-1926), the great portrayers of the American West.
