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. These regal hunting dog statues have beautiful detail and will enhance any entrance, garden, or interior.
