1902 The Buffalo Signal Bronze Sculpture by Frederic Remington

The Buffalo Signal was created for the French Devereux who had befriended Remington during a trip out west. The Devereux family had invited Remington to share their private railway car. Later he gave the striking casting to them as a gift for the boy. The cast done in the lost wax method, of an Indian brave engaged in signaling the success of his hunting party.
This was the only one of this sculpture. Remington broke the mold in front of the young Devereux to ensure that it would be the only one of its kind. Remington advised the family to protect him of pirates and trades of reproduction. So, therefore the bronze was copyrighted as “Copyright 1902 French Devereux” with no foundry mark.
The family honored the wishes of Remington. This sculpture gained its authenticity in 1964 and then was exhibited at the Cummer Gallery of art in Florida. Later it was acquired by the national Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center from Kelsey Devereux, a decedent of the French Devereux.
