Gunther Granget was among the world’s finest sculptors, famous for his wildlife figurines. Born in Germany, Granget’s interest in nature developed as a child. The artist accompanied his father on land surveys and frequently sketched birds and animals. Granget started working for Lorenz Hutschenreuther, a Bavarian porcelain factory, at the age of 24. The artist became one of the top sculptors of the factory and continued to work there until his retirement. The upcoming Cowan’s Auctions event presents Hutschenreuther bisque porcelain figurines by Granget. One highlight is First Lesson, a figural group from the series titled Birds of Forest, Field, and Stream. The realistic sculpture by Granget depicts a family of ducks in the reeds.
The auction also showcases a 20th-century burgundy Lilihan rug with a Persian floral design and detached floral sprays. These single weft, cotton warp rugs were famous for their American Victorian style and quality. Artworks like John James Audubon’s engraving of a Bonaparte flycatcher and 532 Liberty Street by Ohio printmaker Davira Fisher are also featured. Completing the listings is a set of International Silver Co. sterling flatware, Massachusetts Chippendale furniture, and a Rosenthal tea service. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
