This exquisite example of French art pottery dates to the early 20th Century. It depicts a dog sitting down on the ground. The beautiful reddish brown glaze is only slightly different from the glaze of the base, showing the dog's continuity with the rest of nature. He stares blankly ahead with front legs spread widely apart. The craftsmanship is so wonderful that the dog seems practically alive! The back of the piece gives the information of it's maker. While the factory label is hard to make out, the rest of the inscription is clear. It was made in Paris France. It is signed by Van. Rozen and is imprinted with the name Marcel Guillard, an Art Deco artist. This is a fabulous piece for any dog collector or anyone who appreciates fine French ceramics.
