The photo of the base makes it look blue. Is it flat, true black or a dark blue?
I agree that the dog looks a bit "off" for Seguso. I hope you don't take offense, but I've never seen such a clumsy shape in this line.
Glad to see you here again...
I agree, I believe Paul and I had talked about this on another topic, but I dont believe this is actually a Seguso piece.
I have seen 1 whale and a duck made in this similar style, neaither of them had eyes and th ebottom of th epieces were roughly ground too. I could swear I saw the whale with a Scandi name on the label. I havent seen another labeled since. This was about 2 years ago, and it was listed on Ebay.
I know Leslie PiÃ±a has this same dog in her book, but if you look at my pieces shown in the book , and then this example, the styles are totally different.
Maybe we will find another piece like this with a label and it will be cleared up, but I dont think its originally Seguso for now.
