Staffordshire Spaniel – Small
This Staffordshire flatback spaniel is sporting a good line in under eye dotted eye liner as well as a gilt collar and chain. As always, it is the hand painted elements of decoration on these figures that brings them to life.
This dog was probably made early in the twentieth-century and would, almost certainly, originally have had a companion sitting the mirror image way around from this one so that they could both sit on a mantelpiece in symmetry.
In good condition with no chips or cracks.
Depth (front to back): 8.5cm
