English 'Comfort-Spaniel' Staffordshire Figurine, C.1860-1880
A C.1860-1880 English Staffordshire 12 inches high ‘Comfort’ Spaniel figurine.

A figurine listed as being a ‘flat-back’ was to let the buyer know that it would fit on the narrow mantle in the English cottage. Condition: This figurine is in very good condition with no chips or cracks and other than some light loss to the added gold luster highlights this is in very nice condition.
