John Virando Dougal

This piece is a John Virando Dougal pomander.

If you look closely you can see the gauze poked into the dog then filled and plugged. It has an unusual base but I don’t reproduce these images here. It is marked. I assume it was made by John after he left Briglin.

Which would date it to the 80’s ? Is this correct?

He looks a bit glum?
