|This is an interesting piece to me as the dog is depicted with his mouth open, panting. I have not seen one like that before. Also, I cannot quite figure out what kind of metal it is. It has a smoothness to it and kind of a soft feel that makes me think of lead, but I don't think it is heavy enough to be lead. Perhaps it is pewter. Nevertheless, it is a delightful piece, in black to gun metal gray with a red rope and tassel around the dog's neck. His eyes make him have a slightly menacing look. The dog feels good to the touch. Approximately 4 1/2" by 2". The date may be 1930's.|
