This is the second of two carved wooden dogs we have to offer, both by the same hand. This dogs reminds me of the stoneware and pottery spaniels that were popular in the early part of the 19th century. The carving however is mid 20th century. This impressive pooch is made of either ash or fir and he retains the original brown enamel painted surface in excellent condition. The figure features overly large ears and deeply defined fur that will make him a standout in any folk art collection. It appears as though the front legs were repaired at some point, quite likely by the maker.
