This is a classic early 18th century emblem with exceptional color in the coral. The detail is superb and one of this size and level of craftspersonship is extremely rare. The figa grasps a bouquet of flowers, that when inverted shows a dog’s face, indicative of not only affection but loyalty. A truly rare and special treasure to enjoy for lifetimes to come.
