A Staffordshire Centrepiece of Greyhounds and a Spaniel - circa 1850
Yes it is the delightful Staffordshire figure on the front cover of
A - Z of Staffordshire Dogs,
A wonderful book,
by Clive Mason Pope,
As Clive Pope describes:
"The two most popular dogs
of the nineteenth century"
"A centrepeice group of a King Charles Spaniel
sitting on a blue cushion with Italian Greyhound supporters
on a pink marblised serpentine base".
This lovely figure is marvellous as a centrepiece,
or it's just beautiful on it's own.
I think its a Spaniel with Greyhounds on either side,
but its all about different opinions.
This is a beauty, a superb example,
with no damage and with no restoration.
Height: 6.75 inches
