Royal Doulton does a wonderful job creating these precious pieces. The finish and details on their pieces are so professionally done you can spot them a mile away! This piece features a black Cocker Spaniel with gray markings and is a small hunting sporting dog. This little guy looks like he could use a good home. The expression that the artist gave him makes you think he was real!! This piece does have a Y shaped hairline crack on its hind quarter and is very hard to see unless closely examined, please see pictures for condition.
The Cocker Spaniel originated in the United Kingdom and was brought to Canada, Spain and the United States in the late 1800s. The smallest in their group, they are a sporting breed of dogs used to flush out birds and prey from the brush so their masters could shoot them. Happy and popular, the signature trait of the Cocker Spaniel is its dark, expressive eyes that reflect a happy, loving, and active nature. Dogs have been one of the most widely kept working and companion animals in human history. They keep us company, protect us and make us smile. There are an estimated 400 million dogs in the world and over 850 different breeds being recognized by various kennel clubs. Royal Doulton created several pieces honoring some of the most popular dog breeds from Alsatians to Yorkshire Terriers.
