MAGMA PUPPY Figurine - "Good Luck Dog" Handmade by Castle Rock Pottery

A special dachshund figurine originally inspired from a 1920's design from University City Pottery in St. Louis, Missouri, the first professional pottery school of its kind! The original design was attributed to Mildred Clegg, student to Adelaide Robineau of Syracuse NY, who was considered the Mother of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Magma Puppy is our First Signature Piece. The original mold was saved for nearly a century and was rescued on the way to the landfill in New Mexico. We loved, repaired and redesigned Magma Puppy somewhat, and first put it into production in 2006. It has been a low production piece only available from us ,so when you buy a Magma Puppy, you can be assured you'll have unique pottery that you haven't seen elsewhere! Because of its history and being so close to losing this design, we call Magma Puppy the "Good Luck Dog."

The Dachshund was revered in Egyptian culture and was believed to bring good luck to the home. Cleopatra owned some of this culture's first dachshunds.

Magma's color is Emerald Green in a glossy finish, loved by arts and crafts enthusiasts. Magma Puppy was designed, slip cast, etched and glazed by Joyce Anttila of Castle Rock Pottery. Collected by dog lovers, dachshund owners, and those who enjoy cubist or arts and crafts designs. Email if you'd like more pictures of Magma Puppy or closeups of the glaze! Magma Puppy is a sizeable figurine, measuring 10" tall, 3" across and 5" front-to-back at its widest point. It has a substantial weight to it -- you will see it is a high quality piece of handmade pottery!

Careful packaging and shipping via USPS or FedEx is $12.95, and includes shipping insurance. Thanks for looking!
