This hugely decorative terrier dog papier mache footed dish dates to the mid 19th century, circa 1860-70 and although unsigned, it is very similar to the dog paintings of George Armfield (1808-1893.)
This is one of a pair, each retailed separately, see item TA11709A. This slightly convex dish features a hand painted oil portrait of a small terrier type dog. This delightful dish has a spirited artistic style that reflects the well known temperament of any terrier breed. This dish has a wonderful natural patina and will display excellently in any home.
Measuring: Diameter 9 5/8” (24.5 cm). Height 1.75” (4.5 cm).
Condition: The hand painted portrait is in good condition with some minor surface flaking, wear as one would expect from a Victorian portrait of this age. There is some damage to the papier mache foot, seen by the large missing section - please study our images. The circular foot has been very crudely repaired with glue where it joins the underside of the bowl, it stands stable but a neater repair would restore the footed base to its former glory.
