An exceptional antique, probably English, white glazed porcelain figure of a recumbent hound dating from the early 19th century. The figure is finely hand crafted with wonderful detail with the hound resting its head on its outstretched front paws and wearing a collar around its neck and with its tail resting against its back leg. The modelling is exceptional capturing the hounds features, rib cage and muscle tones. The hound has an unglazed flat base and is not marked.
The figure is typical in quality of some of the early English porcelain makers and may indeed predate the early 19th century. Regardless a wonderful example and a real gem to add to any collection.
Provenance: acquired in the British Art Market.
