This is a dog lovers delight. The enamel is extraordinary and amazingly realistic. It could be almost any breed belonging to the hound family. If it happens to be just like your favorite pet, this is a "must have".
The head measures 1 1/2 inches from nose to collar and 1 inch from the top of the head to the buckle on the collar. It weighs 14.8 grams. The base is marked .925 (sterling) and Italy. The pin fastens with a safety clasp.
We have been on the search for other comparable examples. It would be a delight to find a few to add to the "kennel" by sporting several on you lapel. "He" could be the beginning of a fine and fun collection. The condition is excellent.
