This use a piece from my personal collection. Santini was an Italian sculptor who's work in known worldwide. This piece is made of marble and stone composite to look like carved creamy white marble. Measuring 8 1/2" tall and 12" in length it is in excellent condition and signed on the base, I can read SANTINI yet the other writing I am inside to decipher. This Russian Wolfhound or Borzoi type dog was all the rage during the Art Deco period in history. Art Deco style and ready to be yours with elegance and grace!!
