An absolute PERFECT ACCESSORY ITEM to showcase as MANTEL PIECES with your favorite POUPEE, or as companions to your ALL BISQUE or MIGNONETTE doll, we RARELY come across these wonderful DIMINUTIVE pieces, especially in the form of a PUG DOG and COW, but whenever we do we are always ENCHANTED with them as they make a wonderful display for dolls or showcased in a ROOM BOX or DOLLHOUSE setting!
Circa 1900 and of German origin, the pair may have originally been used as CAKE DECORATIONS, as the Victorians often used hand painted miniature porcelain figural pieces as confectionary accessories! The set measures 3" tall to the top of the heads, 3" wide and 1 1/4" deep at their bases, and are CHARMINGLY DETAILED made of very FINE QUALITY porcelain, with beautiful REALISTIC MODELING including a painted COLLAR on the dog and COWBELL on the cow! The figurines are fashioned to face each other, with two tiny GILDED BABIES at their feet, and sit on light green painted hollow porcelain bases! They are both incised "GERMANY" on their bases, and they are both in overall EXCELLENT CONDITION with no apparent chips, hairlines or repairs-------------------their presentation is just ENCHANTING and you will LOVE this wonderful miniature set for display in your collection!
We have shown it being modeled for scale purposes with our 13" antique French Fashion doll, who would like to keep it for her very own for display as DECORATIVE MANTEL pieces-----doesn't YOUR favorite WEE ONE deserve this lovely piece in her salon?
