Sorry but I'm in the rat camp as well :oops:  :lol:  :lol:

I've just looked up lattimo in Ivo's book, with my magnifying glass :evil:  :evil: so I know what it is, but what makes it heavy?

But it is sweet and very nicely modelled in a naïve way.

Here's another piccy of the much maligned greyhound.

I've had opinions from a couple of collectors in Italy whose opinions I value and both agree with my thoughts and Laura's opinion also, that he is almost certainly by Ercole Barovier from around 1931/33, and quite a rare and valuable piece.
I might even register the breed of Rathounds and send him to Crufts next year.

just hopping randomly through past posts and found this one. what a simply charming dog! i think he's precious. hope he still holds a happy place among your collection... of course, if you have grown tired of him, i'm happy to dog-sit anytime  ;D

And I'm just bumping Christine's question - what does make Lattimo heavier than normal glass?

When I moved to Crete he found a new home and has gone back to the country of his birth where he now resides in a private collection. Was confirmed by the purchaser as Barovier and as he owns 6 other animals from the same series quite happy he is spot on with his ID.
Back in UK for a couple of weeks, but heaven knows why with this weather, but still got the bug and around auctions and boots most days, blooming addictive and after weeks fishing in the sun I get with drawal symptoms.
