Pair of Cast Stone European Pointers on Pedestals After Jacquemart Originals

This is a pair of reconstituted cast stone hunting dog statues with matching 3 piece pedestals. Unlike other dog statues on the market, these have incredible lifelike detail due to the fact they are from a mold that is a direct cast from a 140 + year antique original. Like any pointer, such as a Vizsla, European Braque, or Weimaraner, these dogs have a noble and attentive disposition. The originals, carved in the 1800s, were done by Henri Alfred Jacquemart, and these were cast from a borrowed original set. They are finished in a soft stone color, and will work well indoors as well as out.

Alfred Jacquemart was a well known French, 19th century "Animalier", or specialized animal artist. He exhibited in many of the Paris Salons and won awards year after year. He usually signed/stamped his works A Jacquemart, remnants of which can be seen on the lower portion of these dogs.

Total Height with Pedestals is 52 3/8 inches, and they are currently residing in our front garden. Please feel free to ask us for more photos. These regal hunting dog statues have beautiful detail and will enhance any entrance, garden, or interior.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor rubs to stone. Variation in coloration and form as seen in photos. .

Overall Height=52 3/8, Pedestal Dimensions=29 3/4 x 17 1/2
