Vintage Folk Art Small Dog Wood Carving Sculpture gray with black spots
This very cute vintage little dog is hand carved and hand painted. It is probably American. It is gray with black ears, black spots and black on the tip of its tail. It has little white beads for eyes, although the painted black centers have worn from age and handling.
The little dog has its nose to the ground and its tail is up. Its approximate dimensions ---- under 3 3/4" x under 3" (tall at the tail) x under 1 1/4" wide. As already mentioned there is some paint loss / wear on the black centers of its white eyes. Overall the painted wood surface is in good used / vintage condition. As you can see in the photos (taken outside) there is just minimal wear from age and handling.
The small folk art wood carving / sculpture will be a unique and charming addition to many types of collections --- animal figurines, dog art, wood carvings / sculpture, etc.
This dog is VERY cute. It is one of the two best vintage small dog wood carvings we have ever had. It would be a great low maintenance pet for you ---- or for one of your dolls!
PHOTOGRAPHY NOTE: We photographed our cute dog outside. Although it was not in bright sunlight, the reflection/glare on the slightly shiny finish on the paint makes our cute pooch look a bit lighter than it actually is.
