HEAVY 3D Figurine of a Great Dane - Vienna Bronze? Painted Lead?
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: I am guessing C.1930 or so if Vienna Bronze, maybe C.1950 if painted lead.
ITEM: A 3D figurine, heavy metal which might be bronze or lead, in the form of a Great Dane. The dog is female and there are straw marks on the face from the mold. Red collar and a painted brown body with black highlights.
CONDITION: I've had Vienna Bronze figures before but I have found that they are almost always of a matte finish. This piece is very shiny and may, or may not, have a painted overglaze. Ears are slightly flat at the very top; aren't the ears supposed to be pointed? In checking the Net, I see that some figures DO have flat ear tops.
METAL CONTENT: Bronze of Lead or a heavy metal of some sort.
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 2-1/16" long x 1" high x 3/4" wide approx.
WEIGHT: A hefty 41 grams!
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
