This exquisite Borzoi is reclining with it’s front paws gracefully crossed. It is glazed and completely white. The porcelain is beautifully textured to show off this elegant dog’s natural curly fur. The Weiner Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten was founded in 1718, making it the second oldest in Europe. It is well known for the beautiful “whiteness” of its porcelain, and famous for its outstanding craftsmanship. Its markings include its standard blue beehive-looking production mark, as well as the #1713 model number. Robert Ullman (1903-1966) designed this particular figurine in 1936. He was considered one of the most important representatives of Austrian ceramists of the 20th century. This amazing work of art is proof that “great things come in small packages”! It is 41/2″ long x 21/2″ wide, and it is 21/2″ tall.
