An intricate hands-on porcelain figurine with considerable detail and granulated fur.
A porcelain figurine of a poodle dog with hand painted face, claws, and grass. The face has much detail and the painting is quite precise. A typical coiffure made from fritz covers a portion of the body. Porcelain fritz was also used to create tufts of grass. The shallow foot is unglazed and the base is glazed. The porcelain is fine and white.
There is a stamped gilt mark on the base. It reads GERMANY in a circle with a gilt anchor. There is an impressed number 18 on the glazed base.
Attributes: Although the figurine has the look of English Staffordshire – and even has the anchor mark typical of the region, it is a later reproduction. Based on the construction, wear and minimal oxidation of the gilding, we believe it is from the 1950s or 1960s, although it’s possibly from before WWII.
4 ¼” (10.8 cm) long x 2” (5.1 cm) wide x 4” (10.2 cm) tall. Weighs 6.0 oz (170 g)
There are no chips, breaks, cracks, or losses. It looks bright and fresh. The gilded marks on the base have minimal oxidization
A fun, detailed, hands on porcelain figurine. It will make a great addition to your porcelain dog collection.
