A vintage / antique small but relatively heavy cast brass (or bronze) figure of a greyhound / whippet type dog surmount. The little dog is beautifully configured and has a hole underneath which might allow it to be fixed to a mount.
It seems a previous owner cleaned this so there is very little patina remaining, but we believe that the item dates to the early part of last century, because of the detail of the casting.
As mentioned above, this item was probably intended to be mounted on a plinth or something similar, but as a stand-alone item, it does stay stable, although a tad wobbly and might make an acceptable deskweight/paperweight.
The dog measures approximately 4.25in from its front paws to the back paws and stands about 1.25in high to the top of its head. Weighs over 130g.
