A Pair of Staffordshire Pottery Spaniels - circa 1850
A simply wonderful quality pair of Spaniels.
Made by the "Disraeli" factory.
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.
This lovely pair are the actual model
of our classic Disraeli Spaniels.
The modelling is deep and crisp,
they are an original, true and stunning pair.
They are decorated with a very distinctive
underglaze black and white
and thay have fantastic faces.
These delightful spaniels are in very good condition.
There is some minor chipping of the glaze.
There is no restoration.
