This wonderful Springer Spaniel dog was designed and produced by Mortens Studio. Seated at 4 1/2″ tall x 6″ long x 2 ” wide, he has fabulous detailing, and elegant black and white coloring (including the “freckles”.) The designer of this figurine, Oscar Morten, immigrated from Sweden to the U.S. and opened a giftware studio in Chicago in 1931. Over the next 32 years, he created over 300 popular dog and horse models. Composed of ceramic over a metal skeleton, these figurines, although beautiful and engaging, were prone to crazing and flaking, thus making it difficult, today, to find examples in perfect condition. This dog has one small chip (see last picture.) Any other specks on the photos are merely spots of light caused by the camera. If you collect Mortens Studio canines, then this is an opportunity to add a terrific example of this particular breed to your collection. Please take a moment to look at our other Morten’s Studio dogs. They do make a wonderful collection.
