A Big Pair of Staffordshire Free-standing Greyhounds - circa 1850

A superb rare 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.

Here we have another example,
sometimes considered relatively common,
but the usual version has a raised base at the rear.

This pair is the rare version.
They are completely free-standing,
with fine cut out tails
and rabbits with pricked out ears

They are in very good condition,
with no restoration

Height: 11 inches
