For the German Shepherd sculpture collector, here is the one you have been looking for. I purchased this from the estate of a tobacianna collector many years ago. The sculpture and ash tray are by Louis V Aronson, Art Metal Works of Newark, NJ and dates to 1923. Aronson was known for his most authentic sculptures in those days. In the 1930's Art Metal Works became Ronson Lighters, and shortly thereafter sculpture production came to a halt, as the cigarette lighter business was much more profitable.
The dog is in very good condition, he still has both of his ears and tail, and he is unblemished. He is copper patinated over spelter and the sculpture has taken on the patina of nearly 100 years. We have made no attempt to polish or clean it. The base has a marbelized finish which is dull, but could easily be accentuated with a clear coat of lacquer. The base is undamaged and the makers mark is visible when you turn the sculpture upside down. There is no ash reciever in the reservoir, but these are easily obtainable.
All in all, a very good piece, that will not disappoint. Art Metal Works and LVA sculptures are all worthy of investment consideration - there just wont be any more of them.
