Small frog

Bronze

Museum number: MR47

Vermeule catalogue number: Not catalogued by Vermeulehelp-vermeule-catalogue-number

Curatorial note

Sitting frog, with its head raised, in an alert, almost ready-to-hop position. As with the bronze turtle (MR42) and the serpent/eel (SC16) it is very difficult to tell if this object is antique or a 16th/17th century work.

Provenance help-art-provenance

Unknown; in Soane's collection by the time of the creation of the Model Room in c.1834. Soane describes the showcase containing small items MR42-MR68 in the Model Room in his 1835 Description.
