Antique Staffordshire Seated Spaniel With Collar 1890's Signed White With Gilt For Sale

Antique Staffordshire Seated Spaniel With Collar 1890's Signed White With Gilt

Wonderful Pair of Staffordshire SpanielsThis is a beautiful pair of Stafforshire Spaniels that date to around 1885 when glass eyes were introduced. This pair has brown glass eyes and it appears that one eye has been replaced at some point. (see photo) You don't notice the repair unless you study them closely. They are a creamy white with gold gilt designs. The gilt shows age appropriate wear. They have a "flat back" meaning the painting has only been applied to the from of the piece. (This started after 1890) One dog has a thin hairline crack that starts near the front foot and wraps around the body but does not meet. This has not been repaired. There are small air vents on the back also known as steam holes. This is normal. They are smaller than a pencil eraser indicating authenticity. What a great conversation piece they would make on your mantle!
Measurements:13" tall x 11" long
Staffordshire spaniels are an odd breed of antique. On the one hand, they’re the quintessential Victorian bourgeois status-symbol knick-knack: no mantelpiece was complete without a pair of spaniels standing guard. On the other hand, they’re utter whimsy: pottery dogs don’t snuggle, they don’t bark, and they have no household use—but they do come with great stories.The Staffordshire spaniel is tied to the history of the living, frolicking Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In the Renaissance, these gentle, comforting little dogs were called Spaniells Gentle or Comforter Spaniels. Court ladies hid them under their voluminous skirts to keep their legs warm. Legend has it that a small black and white spaniel was found in the skirts of Mary Queen of Scots (1542-1582) after she was beheaded (Adele Kenny,Staffordshire Spaniels,p. 13).The spaniels became great favorites of the British monarchs. King Charles I (1600-1649) had a spaniel as a young boy.

The court of Charles I’s son, the Cavalier King, Charles II (1630-1685), was full of his eponymous spaniels. They play an important role in Michael Hoffman’s filmRestoration(1995) starring Robert Downey Jr. as Dr. Robert Merivel and Sam Neill as King Charles II.

Queen Victoria’s (1819-1901) spaniel, Dash, sat next to her on the throne. His portrait was done by court painters, and for this reason the spaniel became a popular artistic motif in paintings and pottery throughout Victoria’s reign (1837-1901).

Since the 1720s, spaniels had been produced by pottery factories in Staffordshire—along with other figurines, such as shepherds and princesses, lions and lambs. Thanks to Dash, however, the spaniel model enjoyed a siege of popularity in the 1840s which lasted through Victoria’s reign.

The spaniels are all pretty much the same: for the most part, they’re seated, they’ve got a gold chain and locket, and they’ve got a creamy white base coat. They were produced in pairs, but today they are often found in lonesome singles.
