A rare Edwardian miniature silver model of a poodle which is ornamented with details reproducing the dog’s fur and anatomical features.
The model has the London import mark for 1904 with the mark of Edwin Thompson Bryant.
The poodle would have been specially handmade in Germany for Bryant, who was a well known importers agent.
