Oscar Morten immigrated to the United States from Sweden in 1931 opening a studio in Chicago. The studio created over three hundred dog and horse models from 1931 -1963. The most desired figures are those with the "Show Dog" silver foil label as only a dozen or so breeds were done in show dog models. This wonderful dalmatian figure carries this original "Show Dog" label as well as the "Copyright by the Mortens Studio" foil label. The figure measures 4 3/4" in height and 7" from nose to tip of the tail. The figures are composed of ceramic over a metal skeleton. Over time the figures tend to craze and flake thus making it difficult to find a figure in perfect condition. This dalmatian has a flake at the tip of his tail and several tiny nicks on the edges of his ears. Could be easily repaired if so desired; priced accordingly for a scarce show dog model.
