Pug Figurines: PP270

COME PLAY WITH ME (Vintage Basil Matthews Porcelain Pug Dog ): Basil Matthews was a master in making and hand decorating small porcelain animal figurines often with a touch of whimsy, as shown in this little Pug Princess on her Plush Pillow. To the best of my knowledge Matthews had 2 pug models this one and a standing pug you can see in my Pug Museum (EB006). Since they were all hand decorated, no two are exactly the same, so yours will be unique. Matthews started producing his little fanciful figures in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, in 1946. His figurines are very highly prized and becoming harder to find. No pug collection is complete without one. You can see he has signed the bottom of the piece and the original sticker remains. Condition: Excellent. Size: 2 5/8 high, base 2 1/8 by 1 5/8.
