This is a beautifully done, remarkably realist, hand painted & gloss glazed, Italian art pottery figural sculpture of a Parti-color Boxer puppy, w/markings. In very fine/original vintage condition w/zero flaws- It's perfect. This irresistible Modernist art piece has exceptional sculptural, painting & glaze attributes+adorable wit & charm-without a hint of kitsch-& The subject is expressed fully in this life sculpture. Pose, perspective, proportions, incredible hand painting & flawless gloss glaze combine to compelling effect, making it wonderful addition to any Modernist setting-but certainly most so in Boxer homes. Signed 'Italy' on the underside, I won't attribute here - but the form, detail, expressive features & impeccable glaze narrows it to 1 of 3 artists/ateliers of the period/area/genre. Dimensions: L 11" x W 5"@widest x H 3"
