It is indeed difficult to know FOR SURE if the little figurine shown on the photo posted on this thread was modelled from Ortino. One should have to get access to the Faberge archives to be sure. However, I have always heard that this particular figurine of a french bulldog which is displayed at Cleveland museum of arts, was one of the 2 " surviving figurines " of Ortino ( or of a french bulldog ) that Tatiana had in her little collection. The other surviving figurine is in the Kremlin museum of Moscow. The other figurines from Tatiana 's collection are said to have been dispersed after the Revolution.
This type of Faberge dogs and animals figurines are usually VERY small ( about 10 cms ), there are many of them displayed at Buckingham Palace in the Queen's Collections, including a very well known ( and ugly !!! ) french bulldog modelled from life at Sandringham in the very late 1890s. This frenchie dog belonged to King Edward VII who had several french bulldogs including the famous Peter.
I VERY MUCH doubt that one may find a Faberge figurine in an attic ! I rather believe that the other Tatiana / Ortino figurines which are said to have desapeared after the 1917 Revolution, may be in private collections and that their owners prefer to keep silent about these little treasures.
