Limited edition bronze, ‘Springer With Duck’: collector’s item: sold out


An English springer spaniel flushes a mallard in this fine limited edition bronze by international sculptor Michael Simpson. This, the last piece in the edition, is a collector’s item—and a wonderfully evocative wildlife artwork.

This is the time for duck flighting—and Simpson has captured the moment in time when a fast-moving springer spaniel has flushed a duck to the Gun. This is the scene for which a gundog man waits—in particular, a spaniel man.

It is unusual to see a good sculpture from duck flighting, making this a rare piece not only because the rest of the edition is sold out. Furthermore, the spaniel is beautifully portrayed in mid-action, as is the duck. Even the most exacting connoisseur of spaniels will be delighted with the dog in both form and expression, and the entire scene, which perfectly conjures an early morning flight.

This excellent bronze stands 8in (20cm) tall and arrives in a smart presentation box with its certificate of authenticity, making an excellent gift.
