This handsome original Bronze is by French Artist "Alfred Henri-Marie Jacquemart (1824-1896).
A Young and Curious Hound watching a passing Tortoise or Turtle...both figures are wonderfully modeled, and the Patina is excellent.
This is a well known Bronze, pictured in many books and collections...it was produced in 3 different Patinas: Gold, Black & Statuary Bronze...we feel this Patina shows the Figures the Best!
The Bronze is approx. 6.5" tall and 7" long...it is signed on the Base (see Photo)
Another "Dog Bronze" we have had in our collection...this one is ready to travel to your home... and be very vigilant with any Turtles nearby.....
