223 Egremont Plain Road PMB Box 148
North Egremont, MA 01230-2284
917 881 4973
Measurements: 3" diameter (not including tail) x 3" tall
Handmade, homemade - possibly a "make do" when a favorite china figurine was damaged.
Excellent, unfaded velvet - pink and green - with green embroidery - and an attached matching sewing strawberry. The tail is black velvet, appropriate for the grey and black coloration of the china dog head.
Hand painted dog head with only a bit of the black paint missing to the tips of the ears and the top of the nose. Lovely golden eyes.
After staring at the figural dog head , I think the dog is either a scottie, a schnauzer, or a Great Dane - you decide.
Dating to the 1920's-1940's.
