This is the dog group that sold for such a high price.
This carving with glass eyes is in my collection. Mine is only 9" long so he's much smaller. I love him even more since his larger relatives brought such a high price. He has lived with me for at least 25 years. The perfect pet. He doesn't eat and he's housebroken.
Rarer than any breed at Westminster, a circa-1900, 39-inch-wide Black Forest carved tableau of a St. Bernard dog and pups took the blue ribbon in Florida at Auctions Neapolitan and Gallery's Jan. 23 sale when it sold for $30,590 against an estimate of $6,000-$8,000.
