    Bootson
    (72 items)

    Saw this at an estate sale Thursday and could not pass it up. I don't typically bring home things that are so fragile, but the expression on this dog's face and the wild sculptural quality of it's fur, sold me on this one.

    It is stamped 'MADE IN ITALY' '2072' on the bottom and hand signed in the clay on the right haunch. S. something, I can't make it out. Does anyone recognize it?

    It is about 6" tall.

      This has got to be the Green Mans Dog !!!! Very cool !!
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      I think it reads "Cacciapuoti".
      Much better known for deco ladies.
      This is just wonderful!
      Crazy vision of canine fidelity!
      Wish it were here with me!
      Love it!

      AMAZING! Thank You Kindly vetraio50. My guesses were not even close.

      Found one on WorthPoint but I do not subscribe so I can not see what it sold for.

      vetraio50, saw a few cats now that I am looking. This one looked wild. At first I thought it was holding a cigar but now I think it might be a kazoo.

      Lovely Bootson.
      When i first saw this, like HW, i thought green dog too, but a closer look i see they're not leaves but stylised ears and fur in a leafy shape.
      Its lovely, quirky Deco, I'm not surprised you for took it home, I'd love it in mine:)
