RARE and collectible hunting dog or setter with pheasant in its mouth. This large decorative figurine was made by famed Czech company Royal Dux in the pre-war period. Smooth bisque porcelain is finely moulded and hand painted on a naturalistic base with grass and foliage. A beautiful, true-to-life model for the dog-lover or collector. A very special gift.
