Vintage Chris Baldwin Lot 2 Skye Terrier Dog Bronze Figurines 1/50 Lost Wax Rare
An adorable pair of vintage limited edition lost wax Foundry Bronze Skye Terrier sculptures by renowned artist CHRISTINE BALDWIN. The first bronze is of a lying Skye Terrier in a playful pose and is signed "BALDWIN 1/50". The second bronze is of a seated Skye Terrier with more of an inquisitive look on its face, one eye appearing clearly visible with the other eye obscured by bangs.

Here is no marble base which is usually attached to the bottom of her pieces and lastly, its not numbered anywhere and is nowhere to be found in Christine's catalog of works. In my opinion, this piece might have been individually commissioned by Beverly Hayes or it was a one of a kind and wasn't reproduced. It definitely wouldn't have been the first time for Beverly as her collection had a few one offs (commissions/gifts/one of a kind) from artists. So it wouldn't be far fetched to assume this to have been obtained in similar fashion. Finally, both of these pieces are vintage...

The lying Skye in the pictures is an early original (#1/50) and not the same as is currently available to order from Christine Baldwin today. The lying Skye Terrier weighs 1.2 lbs and measures 5.5" x 2.75" x 1.75.

The seated Skye Terrier weighs just over 2.5 lbs and measures 4" x 2.75" x 3.75. The lying Skye is in excellent condition with no visible issues. The seated Skye has some reddish spots showing where perhaps (I'm not an expert) some of the thin fur strands might have come off?

I could be wrong as it might be part of the aging process but I've included pictures so you can see for yourself. The main areas are just underneath the chin, the left side of the cheek and between the front legs. Also there is a very small white spot inside the ear which would exclude any contributing external factor so this probably occurred during the casting or firing process. At any rate, these don't detract from the exquisite beauty of the piece as this particular rendering of a Skye Terrier shows a detail that I'm just not accustomed to seeing in the rest of Christine Baldwin's works.
