Early Staffordshire Black and White Sitting Spaniel

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Rare and early charming Victorian Staffordshire pottery black and white King Charles spaniel with brown glass eyes sitting on a red cushion with gold tassels in the corners.

These spaniels became great favorites of the British monarchs. King Charles I (1600-1649) had a spaniel as a young boy. Owing to Queen Victoria’s spaniel Dash, however, the spaniel enjoyed a surge in popularity in the 1840s which lasted through her reign.
