The Alton China Company, Ltd., Alton, England, was in existence from 1950-1957. Located on Kingcross Street, Longton, Staffordshire, they produced quality hand-painted bone china figures, birds, animals, etc.
This wonderful, life-like figure is that of a Springer Spaniel standing at attention for his master. Decorated in white, gray, black colors and realistic eyes that captivate in a high-glaze finish. The figure measures 5 1`/2" in length and 5 1/4" in height. Marked with three round stamps (2) "Bone China" and (1) "Alton England". Because of the company's brief lifespan, examples of their work is scarce. There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
