Antique Neoclassical Architectural Cream and Green Painted Dog Kennel

About

A very unusual, large and fine architectural dog kennel, modelled as a neoclassical temple, Possibly English, circa late 19th - early 20th century. Of architectural form, with pineapple finials and lion mask mounted pediment, above the festive swagged husks and paterae relief plasterwork frieze and plain dentil cornice, the opening flanked by corinthian pillars and festive urns with floral garlands; with beige satin finely upholstered interior; the whole raised on plinth mounted with plaster masks of Pan. Dog kennels or Chenils became popular among aristocratic pet owners in 18th century Europe. Considered a part of domestic furnishings, dog kennels were typically comprised of a small case or basket open on one or two sides to allow the dog to enter. More elaborate models resembled diminutive canopied beds or tabouret-shaped chairs with a recessed niche below. Marie Antoinette's neoclassical niche de chien by Claude Sené is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Marie-Antoinette, like Madame de Pompadour before her, was a lover of canines. Her pets seemed to return the affection: tradition has it that her beloved dog Coco followed her mistress to her imprisonment at the Temple during the French Revolution. The well-balanced appearance of the present dog kennel leaves no doubt that it was designed by an architect, confidently using neoclassical decorative vocabulary, and likely had been made to match architectural features of the space for which it was intended, possibly an earlier interior in the style of Robert Adam. Overall measurements: Width 42 in / 107 cm Depth 26 in / 66 cm Height  43.5 in / 111 cm Inner dimensions: Width 34 in Height 25 in Depth 18 in.
