c. 1900 Vintage Treacle Honey Glaze Brown Staffordshire Dog Figure
c. 1900 Treacle Staffordshire Dog Figural
This little 6" treacle dog has a big blotch of cream on his left face, see photos. It is an area uncovered by brown treacle glaze by the potter, but is a glazed creamy splotch instead. He has many old glaze bubbles and is a nice honest old circa 1900 late Victorian / early Edwardian era figure. He is rather primitive and was inexpensively made at the time by slip casting, but a nice old English pottery dog.
We love him for his odd character. He came covered in years of dirt and took quite a bit of elbow grease toclean him and get him now presentable for the world.
He was found in Kingsbridge, Devon, England. He stands a proud 6" high, and is a lightweight cast moulded figure of originally white clay, then glazed in treacle. There are no chips or repairs, although he does have bits of 100 year old age cracking, although not uniform. You can see a very tiny firing line in his close up face photo, to the right on his ear. You have to scrutinize very closely to see. He displays beautifully. Click images to see condition in close up views. He'd love a new well cared home for the ages.
Size: 6 x 4.25 inches
