This figurine was fashioned of cast resin and hand painted by the Castagna Company in 1988 Italy. This is large enough to be an actual 'very young' Rottweiler or Tibetan Mastiff Puppy. The Castagna factory has recently started producing this figurine again for sale by another company but this is from their original casting as evidenced by the "1988" marking on its underside. Approximate dimensions are: 9 1/2" height X 7" width X 6" depth. This item is in excellent vintage condition with no damage or defects noted.Any questions, please ask: We try to show and describe our merchandise perfectly but may inadvertently overlook something when listing a vintage item.
