Description

A large and heavy Art Deco period early 20th Century silvered spelter study of a German Shepherd dog raised on a stepped marble plinth in the manner of French sculptor Louis - Albert Carvin (1875 – 1951) renown for animal studies. The red marble base with a stepped centre bears the name L. CARVIN on the top right; below the base is a worn once green baize. The beautifully cast German shepherd dog stands proudly upon the stepped marble, head turned to face toward the viewer. Once silvered the dog has now a pleasing patina to the front elevation where it has been worn by light over time. The back retains more of its original silvered finish. A well executed very striking and impressive decorative item.
