This pair of patinated bronze greyhounds on a granite base comes from France, circa 1920. The edge of the base has been inscribed “MASSON”.

Cast as individual elements, our pair of greyhounds are depicted standing on a rocky surface, with a central protrusion. One dog is bending down to lap up water from a small puddle on the ground. The other dog is standing alertly, staring off into the distance. The removable dogs are mounted into the protuberance by a slot that extends from their feet.

The statue was designed by Jules-Edmond Masson (1871-1932), who was the son of the renowned French animalier sculptor, Clovis-Edmond Masson (1838-1913). Studying under his father, Jules also specialized in sculpting animals. In 1890, Jules began exhibiting his pieces, earning an honorable mention that same year, as well as gold medals in 1922 and 1928.

The entire grouping weighs 85 lbs, with the two dogs weighing a combined 47 lbs and the granite base weighing 38 lbs.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition with minor rubs and nicks. The bronze dogs separate from the granite base for moving purposes.
