Running Rabbit by François Pompon in crystal
François Pompon, a stone and wood carver who worked as Rodin's assistant, later became famous for his own tiny sculptures.
Pompon's crystal animals are modern collectibles that showcase genuine craftsmanship. His Running Rabbit figurine, crafted in resplendent Baccarat Clear crystal, is elegantly presented upon a silicone-coated black base. With tiny ears and a pert tail, the rabbit leaps gracefully, almost as though in a ballet, which makes the crystal appear supple and fluid. From children's literature to animated characters to Easter, the rabbit is a beloved figure. Pompon's sculpture is a perfect gift for animal lovers and figurine collectors.
