Maker & Age: Believed to be European; early 1900s

Details: This handsome, glossy brown German shepherd doggie leads me to believe it had its origins in Europe, dogs being a popular subject for the German, Czech and English pottery makers. The bank was fired at an unusually high temperature as evidenced by the glossy look to the exposed clay on the bottom, a look that is similar to other high temperature fired pieces such as porcelain. A flaw inside the right ear of the dog is the result of the high temperature firing.

Somehow the bank has survived in super condition for around 100 years so there is a good chance that it started life a salesman sample from a canvassing kit that was carried from household to household for potential customers to view, with a minimal amount of handling and usage for collecting coins, which so often shortened the life of any pottery bank.

Dimensions: 4.75" high X 3.25" wide X 4.25" front to back

Condition: Excellent!!

Shipping: The bank will be shipped via USPS Priority mail with insurance. International customers, please inquire about availability and cost of insured shipping to your location.
