Cast brass miniature Scottish Terrier dog circa 1930 with verdigris patina. The scottie dog is finely cast brass and is smooth to the touch and heavy to hold. This little guy weighs eight ounces. He is in a playful position with his head and paws down and his ears alert and his tail held high. He looks as if he's spotted his favorite cat friend who he likes to chase. His patina is a wonderful mix of aged brass and that wonderful light green verdigris which can only come with time. He is hollow cast and is heavy. His previous owner was a child in the 1930's when scotties were all the rage due to President Roosevelt's Scottish Terrier Fala. He would work well on a desk or as a companion for a doll. The last photo shows him with an eight inch all bisque doll for scale.
He is NOT spelter. He was tested with a rare-earth magnet and has more of a brass patina than bronze. Brass and Bronze are the two metals that can develop verdigris because they are both compound metals that contain copper.
Size: 3 3/4 inches long, 2 1/2 inches tall
Condition: Excellent condition with a beautiful aged patina with verdigris.
