Description

Item # 1584

We found these the great looking vintage Italian Staffordshire style dog figurines an antique market inside the amazing St. Nicholas Church in Gent. This is one of the oldest and most prominent landmarks in Gent Belgium and was built in the early 13th century .What an amazing place for an antique market!

The story I was told about these vintage dog figurines is they would be placed in the window of brothels to let clients know if the lady of the house was busy or available. If the porcelain dogs were not looking out but looking in then she was busy.It also said these ceramic dogs were used by women of fisherman out at sea letting there lovers know they were alone.

One porcelain dog is a little taller than the other and slightly different shape depicting the male and female.

Both dogs do have crazing that you can see in the pictures with the zoom tool. Crazing is very common in retro pottery but I feel it gives it that vintage decor look that I just love. Besides the crazing these vintage dog figurines are in good vintage condition with no major damage or repairs.

If you looking for that perfect gift for dog lovers this pair of staffordshire style dog figurines are it!
