My French Chateau
SOLD! ($450.00 pair)
These are exceptional!

A Beautiful pair of French Baroque Brass and Gold Wash Fire Dogs.

These were purchased on a recent European buying trip.

Meant to be used as decorations for the fireplace. However, I can see them as the ultimate doorstop, made into a pair of lamps, or just as a decorative piece on a table top.

They are in very good condition. Circa 1870.

Each "Dog" is approx. 11" high x 9,1/2" long.

A delightful pair of British Tea Canisters!

These wonderfully huge Tin Canisters were not only used for display in one of the British Tea Rooms, but actually held imported Tea! I found them in a little town on the southern coast of England!
