On offer here is this single miniature treacle glaze "Staffordshire" dog.
This is a sweet little miniature treacle glaze, King Charles Spaniel. The model dates to the end of the 19th century (1870s or 80s) - and would have originally been one of a pair which you would have sat on your mantlepiece in the Victorian cottage on either side of a clock. Sadly, I only have the dog which would have sat on the left-hand side - he has been separated from his partner. He has a rich treacleware or Rockingham glaze - he is probably Scottish in origin.
I also have a matched pair available in my shop.
This one is in good antique condition with no chips or cracks..
Dimensions: Height 6 ½ inches. The width is 4 ½ inches and the depth is just under 2 ½ inches.
Have taken lots of photographs for your inspection. Please look at these - there is an area along the back to the base which has not been covered with the glaze - which has failed to reach just along the base in the firing process. The front of course - is just fine! This is reflected in my lower asking price.
All my treacle glaze dogs are genuine antique dogs - and NOT modern reproductions.
Fairly priced for these harder-to-find miniature models - it is probably an item for the more specialist collector.
UK Postage - my single dog will cost £4.95 to send to you using Royal Mail Recorded Delivery. This will be applied to your order at the checkout stage.
