This antique, Dresden Pug dog figurine has a wonderful, exotic look. Seated, with one back paw turned onto its side, he is 3 1/2″ tall x 5″ long x 2″ wide. His coloring is exquisite, with a creamy tan body that darkens as it very realistically, moves down the back of his head, running along his back, into his curled tail, and into the tips of his paws. His face has a deep chocolate mask, with striking three-tone eyes, which gives him a very formal look. He is very richly detailed, including a blue ribbon collar with two gold painted tassels. He is in excellent condition aside from some wearing of the gold on the tassels. Please note that there looks to be a lighter brown spot on one side of his muzzle in picture 4, but that is only due to the light reflection caught by the camera. There some impressed numbers on the bottom of this beautiful pug dog, that are difficult to discern. He will certainly be a fabulous addition to any antique pug collection, and a truly unique and wonderful gift to any pug enthusiast and owner. However, once you see him, this charming guy might be very difficult to give away!
