Russet Staffordshire Dog Family Group Figure Quill Holder Antique c 1860

A rare Staffordshire figure group quill holder of a family King Charles Cavalier Spaniels. This lovely flat back figurine consists of a russet and white dog sat upright in the usual spaniel pose, a similarly coloured bitch lying down to his left and a tiny puppy lying down between them. This antique Staffordshire quill holder has a cobalt blue ground to the base with two holes in which to place quills or pens. It was made by one of the many Staffordshire potters in England in the mid 19th century during the reign of Queen Victoria circa 1860.

These figures are well modelled including their fur, paws, collars and chains and pretty spaniel faces. They are also enamel decorated mainly to the front with hand coloured  black and russet enamels and gilding.

The figure is in very good antique condition no chips cracks nor restoration, with wear to the gilding and some enamel.

This is a great item for display and is very decorative, attractive and is an unusual example of antique Staffordshire flatbacks, mantle dogs, "Wally Dugs", Staffordshire dogs, Spaniels, quill holders or early Victorian Staffordshire pottery.
