An attractive French BRONZE SCULPTURE of a pair of hunting hounds both actively on the scent.  The hounds themselves retain their original gilding, whilst the base is patinated bronze ~ a combination that works remarkably well. Fully signed to the integral base, with foundry stamps to the back.  6ins (15cms) long.

c1870-1880
