This vintage porcelain pair of sporting dogs was made in Grafenthal, Germany in the 1950’s.
Carl Scheidig, today known both as a modeller of wonderful porcelain figurines, and a highly successful businessman, studied what was being produced by his competitors, and produced what was missing. As dealers visited all their regular porcelain manufacturers, looking for something new, they almost always ended up at Scheidig’s, and buying the unique and different pieces from him. He began his factory wit 3 employees in the early 1900’s and 7 years later, he was employing 160.
This fabulous study of two sporting dogs, one a pointer and the other a spaniel is full of energy and wonderful detailing. The pure joy of the two canine buddies, running full throttle, is perfectly captured in the spaniel’s flowing fur and the pointer’s tongue lolling out of his open mouth.
This vintage porcelain pair of sporting dogs measures 4 1/2″ tall x 6 1/2″ long x 3″ wide, and it is in excellent condition.
