Stopped in mid-stride, this stately brown boxer figurine from Japan is lifelike with his head turned to the left and his ears at attention, as though just hearing his master's voice. Realistically colored, his black shaded face and cream colored chest and paws make him look as though you just might hear him bark!
This vintage porcelain standing Boxer Dog figurine measures 4-3/4 inches long, 3-5/8 inches high, and about an inch across the shoulder.
Popular in the 1960s and 70s this type of figurine often had a paper label and was marked simply with "Japan." This pup has no label, and is stamped "Japan" in black on his left front foot.
There are a couple of small spots where the glaze has flaked off on his back near his tail, and there are no other condition issues.
