Roman Bronze Reclining Dog, Ex-Mildenberg Item Number: 1039853
Price: $995.00
From ancient Rome, ca. 2nd to 3rd century AD. Solid bronze dog shown resting on the ground, looking very relaxed. Part of a vast, world-class collection acquired by Leo Mildenberg of Zurich, Switzerland, who built a world-class collection of ancient animal art. His collection were all of animals that did not display any signs of violence, and this piece is a prime example. There is minute detail seen on this piece and the hair, eyes, ears, and other features are readily seen. This type of dog is a breed that one can see today, and appears to be a mixed breed. This dog also appears to have some age, and probably was an old trusted and loyal pet. This piece has an attractive dark green patina with some spotty light brown mineral deposits, and has some heavy light brown mineral deposits on the bottom of the flat base. There is also a mounting prong seen extended from the bottom base (may have been part of a figural group), extending down into custom wood base. 1-3/4"L, intact.
