This little figure is cast in solid jeweler's pewter.  It is not hollow and fragile. The dog measures 3 1/4 inches from nose to tail.  This is a handcast, solid pewter sculpture by Beth Maxwell Boyle. The small Cardi is hand finished by Beth and her husband and has a nice warm patina.  The picture shows the Cardigan Figure in a flat finish to avoid camera glare but these have a nice  gentle gloss.  It is also antiqued to give all the recessed areas more detail.

Fairy Riding a Corgi Brooch

Here is a great new pin that is part Beth's work and part Jim's.  Jim carved this delightful piece from one of Beth's drawings.  An old Welsh folk legend says that some red and some brindle Cardigan Welsh Corgis have markings around their shoulders that are saddle marks left there by the faerie folk who use the wee dogs as steeds.    It is also said that on the green mountains and in the deep misty glens of Cardiganshire in Wales, one can still see the fairies and elves riding the spritely Corgwn through the moonlight.
        The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a breed known to be over 2000 years old.  They were brought to the British Isles by the Celts These dogs have a great deal of heart and spirit.. Our Cardi and Elf pin was just introduced to our line in April of 2000.  These are signed by the artist and the findings are all hand soldered.

 We only recently returned home from  the National Cardigan Specialty in Lancaster, PA where we sold these fairy pins for the very first time.  This pin is highly detailed  from the feather in the elf's cap to the  fur of the Cardi's tail.  This pin is part of the Rams Horn, Corgi Croft Collection. The finish on this piece is brighter than shown, we dulled it to cut down the glare in the picture.
