Staffordshire pottery figurine of a poodle holding a basket of piglets. The basket has hand painted colorful details, and the piglets are finished with a golden luster paint.
The figurine is 5 1/2" x 5" and 2 1/2" deep. It has a teardrop shaped base, about 3 7/8" log and 2 1/2" at the widest point. The bottom is marked "c 79 L" - I do not know when or why is was marked.
The figurine dates from the mid to late 1800's. There is a chip or flake off the back of the basket (see marked photo), but there are no other damages, only expected wear and signs of age.
This figure comes from a private collection. The original owner collected these pieces in the 1920's when Victorian pieces were considered "out of fashion". They have been with the original owner's family, carefully stored and sometimes displayed for over 90 years!
