A 1930s sculpture of a proud Alsace shepherd dog in a patinated bronze finish sitting on a black base. French Animalier sculptor Henri Pétrilly (1875-1960) produced accomplished figures cast in bronze, terracotta and plaster. This deco figure cast in plaster shows exquisite detail.
The metal plate on the front of the base reads - Chien Loup D’Alsace by Pétrilly. On the right side of the base the engraved inscription reads - JB Paris depose (registered) 206, with the signature of H. Pétrilly. Good overall condition.
