ORIGINAL PAINT

EXCELLENT CONDITION

VERY UNIQUE

Here is a very unique Antique Cast Painted Metal Sealyham Terrier Dog Paperweight or Figure from the Musician series of dogs. The Sealy is sitting up playing the Accordion which he is holding in his paws. This is a Miniature Dog measuring 1 ¾ inches in height and 1 ½ inches in width. He is quite heavy for his size and is made from a Cast White Metal, probably Spelter.

The Original Paint is almost totally intact - wonderful shades of biscuit, tan and cream. Just a bit of the paint is flecked here and there due to age and use. The Accordion is gold in the middle and black on the ends. The artist captured the true characteristics and details of a Sealyham Terrier with a rough coat texture and beard.

This Cold Cast Painted Metal Sealyham Terrier Dog is in Excellent Condition without any breaks, cracks or repairs.
