BARON PUG ( Antique Conta & Boehme Porcelain Pug Dog ): Look at the way this pug stands so proudly. He is obviously pug royalty with his black and gold stripped collar bearing 5 large bells and a large bow. Conta & Boehme was a well known German Porcelain Company during the latter half of the 19th Century - best known for their “fairing” pieces given out as prizes at English country fairs. They also made a large number of pugs which were relatively inexpensive when made – not of the quality of the more famous Meissen & Dresden Pugs. It is for this reason most are not hallmarked. Their size varied from around 2” high up to 8” or 9” high. This is an average sized pug, but the standing pugs are rarer than the sitting pugs. You can see he goes very nicely with FRAULINE PUG (PP501). Condition: Excellent. There is an area on the belly where the glaze is thinner. I have photographed it for completeness, but it is of no significance. Much of the gold is worn off the bells – almost always the case in these antique pugs. Size: 4 ½” high, 4 ½” long, 2 ¼” wide.
