Here is Rosso Glass Company's French Bulldog, made with Westmoreland Glass Company's mold. It is 2.5" long x 2.75" high x 2.5" wide. It is what I believe Rosso called "Mother of Pearl" and has red rhinestones for eyes. Not sure Rosso is still active, though they do have a web site. I believe that Rosso contracted their glass making out to companies like Mosser, etc. I may have purchased this directly from Rosso in the mid 2000s. Can't recall. I was putting something back in my china closet and realized that I have a lot of glass and pewter animals, some by known and some by unknown makers. I will put some of those up on CW if someone else hasn't done so already. I'll probably just do a collection of pewter, instead of individual pieces as there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in pewter. My real interest in pewter was in tea and coffee sets and candleholders, as I recall. Been quite a while since I collected pewter.
