This listing is for a beautifully carved wooden dog head parasol handle dating to the last quarter of the 19th century and likely made in Europe or Russia.
The finely detailed carving of the dog's head is complemented by a gilt metal and enamel collar. It has been fixed to a white metal mount with a thread inside.
The dog's head is set with two gemstone faceted eyes. They don't test as diamonds so may well be white sapphires or zircons.
Rarely do you find this quality of carving, a fabulous piece so don't miss it!
Weight: Approx 55 grams
