Meissen Porcelain Pug

ca. 1830, German, carefully molded and decorated, the seated dog signed with the pommel-ended blue crossed swords mark and incised with "3H".
h. 6-3/4", w. 6-3/4", d. 3-1/2"

Provenance: Sotheby's, London, Mark Birley: The Private Collection, March 21, 2013, lot 216; Private collection, Mobile, Alabama.


There is a loss to the toe on the pug's right foot with some minor over-painted "touch-ups" to the surrounding toes and to the far right toe on the left front foot. The underside/bottom exhibits scuffs, scratches and minor nicks, all of which are commensurate with age and use. In overall good condition.
