Pair of Vintage Italian Outdoor Weathered Carved Stone Greyhound Dog Sculptures
Carved of stone circa 1970, the tall vintage greyhounds are set on a flat carved, rectangular base; seated on their back legs, both dogs have a proud expression further embellished with a collar around their neck. The garden sculpted canines have a weathered patinated finish and could be used on either side of a front or back door. Both stone sculptures are in excellent condition and conjure a traditional style. Each dog weighs 76 pounds. The Greyhound is a sight hound which has been bred for coursing game and greyhound racing. Since the rise in large scale adoption of retired racing Grayhounds, the breed has seen a resurgence in popularity as a family pet. It is also referred to as an English Grayhound. Measures: 9” W x 10” D x 30” H.
