Adorable Cocker Spaniel puppy dog sterling silver vermeil (gold washed / gilded) and painted enamel pendant in an oval shape. Marked 'Silver' on the back. What a happy dog! I also think this looks like it could be a long-haired dachshund. The background is blush pink.
I purchased a small lot of these pendants, and I've never seen anything like them in ten years of collecting dog charms and jewelry, so I can't claim to know much about them. But here are my suppositions, and if you know differently, I'd love to learn more about them from you:
1) They're unusual. If they were common, I'd have come across them frequently.
2) They are English. Some of the pendants have hallmarks for a maker (J de M), Birmingham (anchor), sterling silver (lion passant) and an 'O' stamp dating them to 1988, so they're thirty years old. One of the last photos shows the pendant with the back of one of the stamped pendants. I think those only marked 'silver' on the back are from the same maker and time period.
3) All the pendants are in pristine condition with heavy vermeil gold plating in excellent condition, which leads me to believe they are "new old stock".
4)They look hand painted. When there are two examples of the same dog, they are slightly different. Many of the pendants have tiny initials at the bottom, most likely those of the artist. I enlarged the photos in my computer and could not detect anything that looked like pixels, which is an indication of a transfer decal process.
5) Measures approximately 1 1/4" tall, and in one of the last photographs is shown with a dime for scale. Shown with more than one pendant in one or more of the photos; this listing is for the COCKER SPANIEL with a PINK BACKGROUND OVAL pendant only.
There you have it. Maybe you'll see another one like it later today, maybe you'll never see another like it no matter how long you look!
