I have a kauda. Solid bronze think the name of the piece is…

I have a *****...

I have a ***** *****da. Solid bronze think the name of the piece is named how kola. Believe it is a Chief on a horse. Beautiful piece in excellent condition. It is signed. But found one that looks like it. But it's not exact.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The piece I found has some color to it. The one I have is just shiney bronze after I cleaned it up. Did not use anything on it other than a little water

Do u need more

Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

Your ***** *****ba (1865-1922) bronze figural of a Native American Indian Chief on horseback has a high value of $10,000 - $15,000 on today's market.

Note, the artist's last name is ***** ***** Kauda.

Also, do not shine this or wipe it down anymore. Part of the value in bronze is the patina it builds on the surface over time. You can shine sterling silver, but it really should not be done to bronze.
