This wonderful sitting adult spaniel and puppy are 80 years old. They were made by the Goldscheider factory in Trenton, New Jersey, which was associated with the original Goldscheider factory in Vienna, Austria.
These dogs are each stamped "Goldscheider USA". This tells us that they were made in 1940, because that is the only year that they operated in the USA as Goldscheider. The following year, they became Goldscheider-Everlast.
The family, originally from Vienna, began their porcelain factory there. They left Vienna in 1938, opened a factory in England, and then went to Trenton, N.J. There they operated for the one year (1940), under the Goldschneider name.
The adult dog is a male, and he sits 8" tall x 9" long x 4" wide . He is in excellent condition.The puppy is also in excellent condition, and measures 4" tall x 4 1/2" long x 3 1/4" wide.
If you are a lover and a collector of vintage porcelain spaniels, this is a rare chance to own a very charming pair, with the added distinction of only having been made for a single year.
