Lovely pair of large 8.5” tall antique Staffordshire dogs, circa late 1800s. Perfect to grace your mantle or a pair of wall sconce shelves. In true antique form, one of the pups is slightly taller than the other. Some light copper luster remnants can be seen in the crevices and around the collars.
In very good antique condition; some firing and production quirks that add to the charm - one eyebrow has some paint run, one tail has a firing crack with some light ceramic discoloration. If you shake one of the pups you can hear a piece of ceramic inside - I see this often with the antique Staffordshire. These are all results of the firing / creation of these pups and are unique to the way antique Staffordshire was made by hand vs being mass produced perfectly in reproductions. A lovely and sweet pair!
