A Pair of Staffordshire Pottery Spaniels - circa 1850
This lovely pair of Spaniels have very distinctive
underglaze black and white markings, finely painted snouts,
separate front legs and brilliant cobalt blue bases.
Queen Victoria's favourite dog was a King Charles Spaniel named "Dash"
and the Staffordshire potters started making Spaniels of all shapes and sizes to
decorate fireplaces throughout the Country.
Spaniels of this model, with this colouring are rare,
they are an original, true and stunning pair.
These delightful spaniels are in very good condition,
with only some minor chipping to the bases.
There is no restoration.
