Young Man and his Dog*
Unusual and quite large ceramic figural group comprising a semi-naked athletic looking young man walking his eager black pointer type dog. Set on an oval base, both are striding purposefully forward and looking slightly to one side. The contrast between the light colour of the male subject and the black dog make for a very striking piece.
It seems that the man was at one time holding something in his right hand, probably a flag or a staff. We’ve left it as it is but this could quite easily be replaced if thought necessary.
We believe that the dog’s tail has had some restoration but this is not at all noticeable.
Signed by the Danish artist P. Ipsen, numbered 828 and marked with the year 1916. The height is 58 cm.
