In 1979 The Buffalo Bill Historical Society commissioned a limited production bronze replica from the original sculpture "The Rattlesnake" by Frederic Remington that is on display at the Buffalo Bill museum A limited production of 1000 in the entire world and one of those seats on the table in back of the president's desk in the round room, they were produced using the lost art of wax .and then the mold was destroyed .It is signed and dated see foundry marks It comers with provenance and the certificate of authenticity for this sculpture is number blank which probably makes this the artis copy before the run. Making This replica an exact duplicate of the original. This one comes with full provenance and a booklet explaining the process used. This is his best sculpture number 17 out of the 24 sculptures he did in his life and his favorite managed to capture the terror the rider and his pony had when they found themselves confronted by the fact that one or both of them were about to have a rattle snake sink her fangs int to them. He created a sculptural version of modern stop-action photography. leave a number to arrange a viewing. If you do the research, you will find that the price is a steal for this museum quality bronze.no phone no response accepting reasonable offers after viewing BS offers will be ignored. Paid 1,800 for it 40 years ago, do the math, might tarde for classic 60,s car or Motorcycle same price range.
