As you know, we are big dog lovers… so this sardine tine art celebrates dogs everywhere! Featuring Saint Bernard dogs, the archetype of canine rescuers. (Our Titan and Trouble are part of the same extended family of giant mountain dogs- check out their page!)

A perfect gift for anyone with a canine friend…this unique handmade sardine tin art is intricately constructed in layers to create a 3D scene. A mountain scene taken from a vintage book and hand painted with watercolours. In front of this are paper images of Saint Bernard dogs. Central is a lead dog figure, part of a series produced by 'Britains' between 1923 and 1966, when plastic figures began to be produced as an alternative.
