A lovely pair of large "Comforter Dogs" in excellent antique condition, these make a very handsome display pair for a mantelpiece or dining room dresser. Each well molded spaniel is decorated on the front side with what appears to be gold lustre rather than gilt (the typical purple quality to the gold under very bright light indicates lustre to us). There is minor wear to the decoration and a couple of short hairlines radiating up from the base of one dog, but these appear to be glaze cracks. Otherwise, no damage, restoration or repair that we can spot.
They stand 11 15/16" and 12" high and weigh 3lbs 4oz and 2lbs 14oz respectively.
Any questions, please email. And please check out the other English antiques in Tangrams. Thanks for visiting!
Texas buyers please note that sales tax will be collected either by Ruby Lane or by us.
