Product Description

An interesting model dog…

So this one has baffled us a little! We are actually unsure of the age of this piece and its original purpose, however it is an interesting display piece which we think depicts a Pomeranian dog?. Based on its current form, we would assume this piece dates to the latter part of the 20th century onwards, but unfortunately we do not have any provenance. Please note : This isn’t a taxidermy piece!

The dog has the ‘cute factor’ and considered as a fun piece too. At first glance, (when we found it), we thought it was a taxidermy piece, yet once we saw the comical eyes, we wasn’t sure what it was! We think this may have been an artists depiction of the dog, or maybe a prop made for a TV or theatre company?. Again we cannot be sure…

It’s tricky to describe the piece, but here goes. Made in what we think is a straw or soft interior, the dog is covered in a fake fur and complemented with comical eyes. The attention to detail is staggering however and the likeness uncanny. Someone has spent a lot of time making this piece, therefore it would look great on display in one’s home or of course a ‘dog related’ environment. For those who are not a fan of taxidermy, this could be a cool alternative…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The dog is structurally good and it happily frees stands on its wooden base. There are elements that are tatty, yet we feel in its current form it shows craftsmanship, charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
