South German, circa 1600
A BRONZE FIGURE OF A SEATED DOG

Catalogue Note

Chipps Smith illustrates a number of designs for house fountains in Southern Germany in the sixteenth century and this dog would  presumably have been attached to such a fountain. Note also the engraving of 1648 of the larger fountain of the animals at Schloss Hessen.
