So many good valentine’s this week I think, including if one’s valentine in their beloved animal companion! This wonderful folk art dog is hand-carved of marble, late 19th/early century I believe, with many of the sweet qualities of more frequently spotted carved marble lambs, but much more singular, and in my option, much more charming! Fabulous face and just fabulous, nose to tail.
6 3/4” x 2 1/4” x 4 5/8”. Weighs 3 lb. 2 oz. Black felt well adhered on the underside. Very good condition, no notable chips or issues whatsoever. Untouched surface, with few dark stains here and there as documented. Photos do no justice.
