This is a fine pair of antique Victorian Staffordshire dogs - they take the form of a pair of seated chimney spaniels.
They are genuine Victorian examples, and definitely NOT reproductions.
They are nicely modelled examples with no chips or cracks - they have so crackling to the thick clear glaze commensurate with their age.
They are a matched pair, as created.
Each dog has a little gold coloured collar with a padlock on it - the gilding has a little purple lustre tinge to it - there is rubbing and losses to the padlock and chain - but not a major issue. Little fleck of gold gilt remains on the curls of each dog here and there. Love their little red mouths.
They are an attractive pair and will look fabulous on a country kitchen dresser or on a fireplace in a Victorian parlour.
These are a nice domestic size. Height: 9 1/2 inches. Width: about 7 1/2 inches and Depth: 3 1/4 inches
The pair just under 2 kg in weight.
Due to weight - probably UK posting only.
Location code: STAFF 19/1
I am delighted with these dogs which are just as described and am very pleased to have them. In my collection. Thank you very much..
