With best wishes, Really lovely Victorian Staffordshire Comforter Spaniels,made in Staffordshire c1875. Classic moulding,first class,showing a hunting scene. The lid is perfect with no buckling and the handle is a great shape too. They can sit on our home dresser until sold :) £120 the pair. SHE IS QUITE TALL 10 INCHES WITH NO FADE OF COLOURS AS YOU CAN SEE.These dogs are 15inches tall,so a good size and they have the most lovely expressions,that will enhance any room with their Victorian elegance. She may have been used as a mantel spill,as there has been a basket on her back that has been knocked off,however it does not spoil the figure on display as you cannot see it. Very nice intense flow blue Ringtons tea/biscuit caddy in celebration of the Millenium.The Toby boys are lustred on the edges,and any collector would love these,no damage,no repairs, just a tiny paint loss on one. ----- Original Message ----- From: XXXXXXXXXXX To: Dianne - Glamorgan Antiques Sent: Thursday, December 08, 2011 PM Subject: Re: Staffordshire Dogs Dear Dianne, The Staffordshire Dogs have arrived safe and sound ! The facial expression is everything,and, as you can see these wistful eyes will bring a quiet ambience to any room they look out over.I have to say that they are beautiful pieces - all three of them - and the photographs just don't do them justice as the dogs are really wonderful, I am so happy to be their ' guardian ' until they pass on to the next generation ........ May I compliment you on the marvellous packing, Dianne - indeed it was an expert job and unwrapping was akin to a task off the Krypton Factor ! Thank you for your exceptional care and assistance, I shall certainly be keeping regular checks on your website in the future. Beautiful stoneware jug,made by the top potters Ridgway. Both dogs are in beautiful condition with no damage. Staffordshire dogs,have been made since early Victorian days,they are as popular now as they were then.They were made in Staffordshire c1890,so well over 100 years old and in pristine order.As you can see the old Summer Roses garlands are on each jug,with a smaller pattern on the back.It is exactly as described on the website and beautiful.I can confirm what other customers say - it was fantastically well packaged - if it had got damaged in transit it would not have been any fault of yours!
Not before time either,let us bring colour and laughter back into our homes. Here we have a beautiful matching pair of Staffordshire Comforter dogs.
There are some minor firing faults on the reverse that are perfectly normal ,now please note that this is NOT damage but was something that happened in the Kiln when they were made.(Antique dealers in Ceramics ignore minor pottery firing faults,they are just part of the primitiveness of these delightful Olde England Antiques)Staffordshire figures were made for the humble Villager or peasant,they were not made for nobility as Meissen always was.
Now of course the wheel has turned full circle and the nobility and upper classes adore these ancient figures,in fact we all do .
