A little Cocker Spaniel figurine sits atop this small brass box, looking for all the world like he's waiting for a treat! Our doggie is very lifelike, sculpted with an intense, wavy coat and long ears.
This box would be perfect on a desk or dresser for holding small supplies -- paper clips, push pins, loose buttons, rings, etc.
Size is 2-1/2 inches wide by 3 inches long, by 1-1/2 inches tall (with the lid closed). The little dog is an additional 1-1/2 inches high.
The box and lid are solid brass. While the bottom of the box is finished in green enamel, the top is bright, golden color. We are not sure if the dog is brass or it may be white metal (spelter) with a brass wash - a magnet does not stick. It appears to be solid and is heavy for its size.
CONDITION is very good : There is no damage on the dog, which is well made with carefully filed mold marks and securely fastened to the box lid. The green box is square and sound with no dents, cracks, bends or twists. SEE OUR PICTURES - the enamel color is wearing through in a few places, with bright brass peeking through. There is rubbing and some discoloration on the inside bottom from use, which could be easily covered with a small piece of felt or fabric. Inside the lid, you can see two screw heads holding the dog figurine in place. There is some finish discoloration on the inside of the lid and some lightest bumping.
We are not sure of the date of this piece - it would appear to be from the 1920s-1930s but may be older.
A very nice item especially for a spaniel lover!
