This pair of Staffordshire Dalmatians have captured wonderfully the restlesss quality of the breed with the alertness in their faces each of them looking in slightly different directions. Although not marked, which was not unusual I am pretty certain this pair would have been made by one of the Staffordshire Potteries and my instinct tells would date to circa 1870. Their size is lovely not overly large and certainly not miniature measuring approx 5"/13.5cm in height as they sit upright on their cobalt blue oval bases. As typical of this period the dogs are hand painted with their black spots and their wonderful faces and their little red smiles. They each have around their neck a painted gilt collar and chain which originally would have shone out but over time and much love this has rubbed which is also true of the gilt line around the rim of the bases.

The Three MusCATeers has clarified that the Lovely Pair of Nicely Observed Staffordshire Dalmatians (LA493715) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1870
Both the dogs are in good condition with no chips or cracks that I can see. The gilt paint of the collar and chain and rim around the base has mostly been rubbed away over the years.
