The Royal Dux Company, Duchov, Bohemia, was founded by Eduard Eichler in 1860.
This lovely Russian Wolfhound, circa 1947-1990, is presented in a naturalistic pose, lying down with head up and front paws stretched out in front of his body. Coloration from white to tan to medium brown. The figure measures 7 1/4" in length, 3 3/4" in height and 2 3/4" in width. Marked with the pink triangle "D - Royal Dux Bohemia"; Circular stamp in green "Hand Painted - Made in Czechoslovakia" surrounding the triangle mark; and impressed "328I and 52". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Very nice third period figurine.
