Antique Pottery English Staffordshire Dog
This English pottery Staffordshire dog is resting on a grassy spot, possibly in your backyard! As is with any early Staffordshire animal, they were naively done and some were even decorated by children. The base is hollow, as it should be, with no glaze on the inside while the dog itself is heavily glazed.
I love the look of this dog! It appears as though he’s posing for the artist. The dog’s colors are white with varying shades of hand painted browns.
The dog is 3 ¼” high X 4” long X 1 ¼” wide, circa 1830’s – 1840’s.
The condition of the dog is very good with two very minor nicks to the right ear. There are no cracks or hairlines.
