A rare Minton biscuit porcelain model of a poodle leaning forwards on its forelegs on a tasselled cushion, bottom in the air. It holds the remnants of a basket handle in its mouth.

It is noted that some examples of this model are depicted with a bone in the mouth and the author confirms that the "bones" will be a fake amendment to the remnant of the handle of the basket which is the true feature of this model as documented in Godden.
