Description

A fine and scarce Mid - Late 19th Century Antique English Victorian Staffordshire Pottery Figure Group of an Afghan Hound, together with his diminutive companion, a little girl. Catalogued by A. & N. Harding, { Victorian Staffordshire Figures 1835 - 1875 }, as Fig. 2222, where the dog is incorrectly described as a spaniel, the authors nevertheless go on to remark of the polychrome pair there illustrated, "Probably the finest pair of dog and children's groups to have been produced...". Furthermore, the height of the larger of the two versions of this figure there mentioned is given as 11.35 inches, thus suggesting that the group here offered, standing as it does at 12.50 inches in height, was perhaps one of the earlier figures to come out of the mould. Interestingly, Clive Mason Pope, in his "A - Z of Staffordshire Dogs - A Potted History" {Resego AG ~ 1990 ~ Reissued by A.C.C. Woodbridge ~ 1996}, not only describes this group correctly, {Page 13, Fig. 1}, but records the height as 12.50 inches. The figure group here offered is in excellent condition, having but one small firing crack at the animal's throat, which may clearly be seen in Image 4. ~Ref. AEVSPAHH2222CMPAH1-23
