Vintage Cortendorf Boxer Dog Figurine W/tag (pre-goebel):
You are offerding on this absolutely awesome bulldog figurine which still has its original tag on it which reads Cortendorf. I did a little research on the net on this company andThe Cortendorf Porcelain Factory was a predecessor of Goebel, founded by Julius Griesbach in Coburg-Cortendorf, Bavaria, Germany, in 1890. This is one of their boxer figurines. Ironically, when I took the photos for this listing, I noticed the numbers on the bottom of the dog. I never noticed these before I took these pics. He is a beautiful fellow, or gal. Notice how realistic his/her face is. I hear this was a trademark of this company. I should point out on his front back left leg it looks like a crack. I thought for a moment it had been glued back, but as you can see from the photo from the otherside, it has not been repaired. In other words, it is merely an age crack. There are a couple specks of paint loss on the ears, which you can see in the photo. He measures 4 3/4 inches tall by 5 3/4 inches in length. Please email me if you have any questions.
