This is one of the most unique treasures I have come across in recent months. A charming figural scene made by Simpson Hall & Miller Silver Co. features a boy and his dog walking along a rocky hill.
The details are simply amazing, down to the fur on the dog. Even the ferns growing among the rocks are wonderful in their style and scale.
I am intrigued by the tiny detailed buttons on both his coat and boots.
On the backside there is even a powder horn tucked under his arm & a satchel bag resting upon his back. The quadruple plate silver is in really nice condition with some nice patina to it.
I love that I happened upon this little treasure and am considering what I might do with it.
My first thought is to make it into a small bookshelf lamp.
For now, I am placing him in a display of English dog books and vintage stirrup cups.
I will follow up on his final placement, until then I am thrilled just to have this little treasure.
