This wonderful Old English Sheepdog is over 65 years old. The designer of this figurine, Oscar Morten, immigrated from Sweden to the U.S. and opened a giftware studio in Chicago in 1931. Over the next 32 years, he created over 300 popular dog and horse models. Composed of ceramic over a metal skeleton, these figurines, although beautiful and engaging, were prone to crazing and flaking, thus making it difficult, today, to find examples in perfect condition. This handsome Sheepdog stands a full 5" tall x 6" long x 2 3/4" wide. He is in great condition for his size and age, with some crazing. He is so beautifully detailed, that you can see nearly every strand of the fur on his topcoat! He is both large, and as one of the more "hard-to-find" Morten Studio dogs, he will certainly be a fabulous addition to any collection and the perfect addition to the home of a Sheepdog owner, trainer or breeder!
