A Pair of Staffordshire Greyhounds - circa 1855
A delightful diminutive pair of Staffordshire Greyhounds.
Nearly all the Staffordshire "Long Dogs" are indeed Greyhounds.
Often referred to as Whippets, no - the king of dogs in Victorian times
was the Greyhound. Coursing was hugely popular and the
Champion dogs were celebrities.
This is a rare model of these lovely little greyhound spillvases.
very good modelling and excellent quality.
They are in very good condition,
only a small chip re stuck to one ear.
