A Pair of No.3 Red & White Staffordshire Spaniels - circa 1850

A classic true pair of Staffordshire Spaniels,
lovely feathered red markings and gilt collars.
and with happy faces.

Comforter spaniels, fire-side or mantle dogs,
they came in all shapes and sizes and decorated houses
the length and breadth of England.
In some streets of terraced houses, every one could have a pair
looking out of the window onto the street, but the most popular position
has traditionally been around the fireplace.

Moulded No. 3 on the base
they can be found in sizes No. 1 to No. 6 (the smallest).
This is a true pair,
that have always been together.

Any fine, early, true pair, in good condition should be cherished,
there are many, many late, matched, poor quality and damaged pairs
that are very easy to find.
This pair have lovely deep and crisp modelling
with very distinct, raised No.3's on the base.

They are in good condition,
a slight seam crack on the head of left hand dog
and there is no restoration.

Height: 8.75 inches
