Barye did many small sculptures of Rabbits and Hares in the 1830s. They were very popular and were cast with many variations. This model was cast without a base, with a rimmed rectangular base, and the present bronze which has an oval base.
These small bronzes are sought after by collectors due to their charm and character.
This small Rabbit with ears down and the oval base was cast about 1870, it is finished in a mid brown patina.
