My life became really distracting for a couple of months there, but picking up on the conversation...

The first one from Ruby Lane just claims "vintage" status and isn't described as a valuable original piece.

The funky base would make me suspect it's more likely a recent reproduction, rather than an item with real bonafides.

http://www.rubylane.com/item/977942-BRZ-2124/Vintage-Gilded-Bronze-Mastiff-Dog-Marble

The second is from eBay and is "a great deal for a nice Barye" at $399.00 or best offer.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-BARYE-BRONZE-DOG-AND-MOUSE-SCULPTURE-/281799245814?hash=item419c8b3ff6


I think I could happily own a repro rather than real item.   I just like them to be identified as such, and priced accordingly.

Description: E C Siter (American, 19th/20th Century), oil on canvas, Mastiff, signed and dated 86 lower center, 27" x 25 1/4" stretcher, 33" x 31" overall

This latest acquisition was a rare find. Previously unknown and buried in an attic for well over 70 years. The gold leaf frame was literally black from the time spent in that environment. Originally owned by the mother of the deceased mother, with her children just interested in the real estate and wanting to toss out all of the "junk" in the attic.

Fortunately, the auction house saved this rare gem and after being cleaned up it looks magnificent (pictured before cleaning). Also fortunate that this piece was only 93 miles away from the "Museum". Right in the neighborhood of Andrew Wyeth's home at Chadds Ford, Pa.

A very powerful life sized image done by a woman who was a listed artist in her own right, and who also worked on the Frick Collection catalog from 1909-19.

Zardak, Sorry for the delay.

The first is of course a Bulldog and for $78 you can't go too wrong.

The second is presented as Barye. Barye is a popular casting that unfortunately has been reproduced by many fraudulent dealers and sold as originals. Many castings even fool experts and it's why a provenance is usually required to validate it's worth. Perhaps this article may help.

DESCRIPTION: Fabulous Victorian little whiskey jug or rum jug. It has a ceramic or pottery body and sterling silver spout and lid. This is English. It was made by Taylor Tunnicliffe Co.which started in 1868. This piece dates to the 1880s. It is marked with the Tunnicliffe mark with crown and a griffin BF mark. The Griffin mark was for the silver mounts maker. Beautiful quality made jug is black with a raised medallion portrait of an English Mastiff on one side. The name of the dog KING is written below. The reverse side is just black without a portrait. The upper collar and lid are sterling silver. You can see the STERLING mark in pic #5. The Sterling lid still has its original cork. Cork has cracking and losses from age. This is an antique over 100 years old. Very good condition for age. Portrait medallion is detailed and excellent. Tarnish on sterling silver. Typical crazing. Rough area on handle appears to be kiln kiss pic #7 (handle touched something in kiln causing minor chipping original to making that was painted and glazed in original manufacture).

Just noticed the picture of Pinehollows Friar Tuck. I had a Tuck son 30 years ago. My boy was very typey and handsome - when he was sitting down. 'Nuff said!
