PERKY OLD PUG ( Vintage Chelsea Antique Pug Dog Reproduction ): I would love to tell you that this is a real Chelsea Pug from their “Gold Anchor Period” (1758-1770). It does bear their Gold Anchor hallmark, their most forged hallmark, and this is a great example of the early English Porcelain Pug style. However, since it is marked “Germany” on the bottom – I would say this is a high quality reproduction, not a forgery. The Chelsea factory was founded in 1743 and remained independent until 1770 when it merged with Derby. Derby pugs have this same appearance. He is nicely molded, hand painted and seated on a royal blue platform. He sports a blue collar with gold studs, a gold pendant in front and what looks like a golden flower-shaped clasp in back. Condition: Excellent. Size: Pug 2 7/8” high, 2 3/4” long. Platform 2 5/8” long, 1 5/8” wide. Total height 3 1/4”.
