A beautiful rendering of the characters from the Eugene Field poem, “The Duel.”

These two are much more well-mannered and amicable than the two in the rhyme. The cat is painted in a butterscotch, green and yellow calico print. The dog is painted in a brown and butterscotch gingham print. Each has faux stitching to look like vintage patchwork stuffed toys. Each also wears a yellow bow or ribbon.

Both have solid, round deep brown eyes. The cat’s mouth functions as the spout of the creamer and its tail is designed to be the handle of the creamer. The dog has a short stubby tail and its tongue hanging out.

This is a matched pair.

The pair was made by Brayton Laguna Pottery. An example of this pair, in a different color combination, is pictured in "California Potteries" by Mike Schneider on page 65. (There is a salt and pepper shaker set in this color palette shown on the same page.)

The cat creamer is approximately 4 1/2" tall, 2 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" deep. The dog sugar shaker/pourer is approximately 4 3/8" tall, 2 3/4" wide and 3 5/8" deep. The pair is made of pottery. The pair is unmarked with the exception of a handwritten “L” or a “7” on the base of each figure.

The pair is in excellent condition. There are no cracks or repairs. There is age-related crazing. The glaze is clean and shiny inside and out. There is a small, flat glaze chip on the base of the gingham dog (on the right side, near the rear corner). Please see the pictures for the greatest detail.

Easy to imagine this pair marauding around the kitchen when no one is looking.

A beautiful set.
