Pair of Antique Samson Porcelain Models of Bolognese Hounds

About the Item

Pair of antique Samson porcelain models of Bolognese Hounds French, Late 19th Century Larger model: Height 22cm, width 30cm, depth 12cm Smaller model: Height 19cm, width 30cm, depth 12cm This charming pair of porcelain dog figures was crafted by Samson et Cie (French, 1845-1969). The manufactory specialised in the creation of high quality reproductions of pieces by other renowned manufactories such as, in this case, Meissen. The design of these models is inspired by one created for Meissen in 1769 by Johann Joachim Kändler (German, 1706-1775). The models showcase seated Bolognese Hounds, which were a very popular breed of lapdogs in 18th century Germany. Each one is skilfully crafted, its form showcasing the elaborate coat one would see on dogs of this breed. Brown markings cover parts of the models, and their facial features are very well painted. The two designs beautifully complement each other and can be displayed together or separately. Each model bears the Samson mark used on pieces inspired by those crafted by Meissen. This pair of adorable dog models would be a superb gift for anyone who admires dogs.

  • Pair of Large Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze and Samson Porcelain Candelabra
    By Samson & Cie
    Located in London, GB
    A pair of large Louis XV style gilt-bronze and Samson porcelain candelabra French, Late 19th century Measures: Height 68cm, width 54cm, depth 36cm Crafted with great artistry and skill by the Samson porcelain manufactory in late nineteenth century France, these exceptional candelabra feature superb full-length porcelain subjects set within elaborate gilt-bronze lighting branches. Made in the Louis XV style, each pair, symmetrical to each other in design, consists of five-lighting branches, a mount for the porcelain, and elegantly sculpted bases. The porcelain figures are that of a man and woman playing musical instruments, wistfully gazing towards each other while they stroll and play; he plays a variation on the bagpipes, probably the French cabrette, while she plays a large guitar-like stringed instrument. They stand 68cm in height and bear the Samson mark to the underside. Beautiful pieces, the porcelain figures of which can stand separately, they are wonderful examples of French antique...
