Richard W. Lange
A particularly fine gilded bronze sculpture, featuring a race-bred Mercedes-Benz at speed by the accomplished German artist Richard W. Lange. Both the intrepid driver, with riding mechanic at his side (once compulsory in competition), a model of concentration. The bronze sôcle, evocative of clouds of dust characteristic of the heroic era of road racing on unmade roads, signaled a time when Mercedes-Benz achieved great success in building and racing cars. Set on the original marble plinth and signed R. Lange in the bronze. German, circa 1928.
Length: 13 inches (33 cm).
