Part of Parsons' series of playful terrier dogs, this is a highly desirable original pair that have remained together since being issued by the Gorham foundry. So often we find these fabulous casts of Parsons' work being split up and while we still love to carry the models individually, they are particularly rare and special when they remain together as an original pair. This pair features a brilliant medium-brown patination highlighted by a carefully executed verdigris chaotically throughout. They remain in nearly pristine condition.
Measurements: [seated dog] 6 1/2" H x 7" W x 2 5/8" D; [crouched dog] 5 1/8" H x 6 7/8" W x 2 5/8" D
Excellent original condition with very minor patina wear. Carefully cleaned and sealed, a fine presentation.
