ANTIQUE BRONZE INKWELL WITH CHILD & DOG
An attractive and unusual patinated bronze inkwell of a child feeding his dog which is chained to its kennel. The top of the kennel lifts off to reveal the porcelain inkwell within. The child in 19th century clothes, of smock and hat, and holding a bowl of food out to the dog which is some form of retriever. The naturalistic base includes sheaves of corn, grasses and rustic fences. All extremely well modelled and set on an oval patinated bronze base.
