Antique Austrian Terracotta Pug Dog w/ Glass Eyes



We find that some of the best examples of sculpted dogs can be found to be made of terracotta. This pug has the look of a real dog. The glass eyes, the beautifully accurately painted body, and the size, brings this sculpture to life. We are always on the lookout for such fine examples. Often these terracotta sculptures have repairs, breaks, repaint, and other issues. This example shows none of those problems.
