Master model, 1892; Plaster, shellacked; Length: 290 cm; Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Gipsformerei, R-06580
This crocodile was presumably moulded at the zoo. It is part of the former collection of teaching aids of the Königliches Kunstgewerbemuseum (Royal Arts and Crafts Museum) in Berlin. Among them are plaster casts of architectural elements, arts-and-crafts objects, famous sculptures and roughly one hundred casts of human body parts as well as parts of animals. The teaching aids were used in drawing classes at the Unterrichtsanstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums (Teaching Institute of the Royal Arts and Crafts Museum) in Berlin. They were also made to be sold to other teaching institutions. The crocodile’s price in the 1890s was set at 50 marks.
