A pair of Staffordshire dogs in white and rust colors with gold collars and chains. These have been painted by hand. See the brush strokes in the paint.

This is known as a "flatback chimney piece". The dogs are mean t to represent Cavalier King Charles spaniels that were favorites of King Charles II. Queen Victoria brought them back into fashion in the 1840's. An interesting tidbit - Her dog was named "Dash".
