Victorian Dog Figurines Hand Carved Alabaster French Poodles Circa 1890 AF
A very charming pair of late 19th century French hand carved alabaster poodles, each gripping in their mouths a basket of hand painted fruit. This pretty pair of pooches are well carved with good detailing and definition.
Size: Oval alabaster base 5.25" by 3". Dogs height 3". Weight 1 lb 7.4 oz
Condition: Although not initially apparent sadly they have been a little mischievous each playing too roughly and have the old battle scars to prove it. One poodle has had his front legs broken in two places and reattached with old animal glue. The other poodles front paws has one breakage to each paw which has been repaired. This same dog has had her basket reattached in the past. Also a central fruit is missing from each basket. However, to have pair is a delight and they are so very decorative. Please see the final image of them displayed with a pretty alabaster tazza, perfect for your vintage bathroom.
