The undisputed “King of Terriers”, and favorite dog of Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, and Calvin Coolidge, this large, Airedale was designed by Mortens Studios of England. 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 handsome Airedale stands a full 5 1/2″ tall x 6 1/2″ long x 3″ wide. He is in good condition with some crazing and a small chip on the underside of his muzzle, that cannot be seen without turning him over. He is both large, and one of the more “hard-to-find” Morten Studio dogs, he will certainly be a fabulous addition to any collection and the perfect addition to the home of any Airedale owner, trainer or breeder!
