This is an antique bronze Pug that I acquired earlier this year. He's very detailed and life sized as well. He measures 17" long, 7 3/4" tall and 7 1/4" at his widest point. He's not solid, but still weighs in at nearly 17 lbs. He has a very nice patina. There are no markings from any maker, that I can detect. I've never seen another one that even closely resembles this one, so I'd have to say this one is fairly rare. I have seen others, but those were about 70% smaller than this one. He's so lifelike that most visitors do a double take when they see him.
This fellow, along with some of my other dogs, will actually grace the pages of Antique Trader Magazine that will be out August 2019.
Thanks for taking time to stop in for a look!!
