Staffordshire Greyhound Figure

Unlike most Staffordshire spaniel figures these sight dogs were made to be viewed from all sides. That absolves them from being placed on a mantelpiece alongside the flatbacks which were only decorated on their front face.

The hound shown in this piece is a particularly handsome character. Its quarry (an unfortunate rabbit) lies in front of its front paws.

At some point I think it has suffered a break to the snout of the dog, but this has been repaired in a fairly expert manner so is only visible on close inspection. There is also a firing crack to the front right leg.

This piece probably dates from the late 19th Century.

Measurements:

Length: 23cm
Height: 25cm
Depth (front to back): 10cm
