This is a nice bronze statue of a Borzoi by the listed artist Ugo Cipriani. It is 9 1/2 inches tall with the base and about 9 inches long. This is in excellent condition and is signed on the base.It would be circa 1920/30 vintage.Works by this artist are scarce. I found 3 bronze examples searching the net.Most of the Cipriani clan worked in stone not bronze. If you collect dog statues or Borzoi items this would be a great addition to your collection.

Some of their door knobs have sold for over $4000.00.They started in the 1870's. I believe this plaque is from the 1870's or 80's. The quality is fantastic with very crisp detail.
