A small press-moulded earthenware spaniel dog figure. With a brown treacleware glaze over a yellowish buff body. The dog has a moulded collar but no chain. The base is slightly recessed with an un-glazed foot ring except where the thick glaze has run. Base is closed with a small pierced air hole.
Probably made in Staffordshire circa 1850-1880.
The final photograph shows a much larger dog shown alongside for comparison. The larger figure is not included in this sale.
162 mm highest to top of head.
Small glaze chip on tip of nose. Small chip under the base foot rim associated with a kiln glaze touch scar.
