 FANCY FAUX MEISSEN PUG ( Antique Porcelain Pug Dog ): This is one of the nicer looking Meissen-style pugs I have seen. Many 19th Century porcelain manufacturers – often in Dresden, Germany, near Meissen – made high quality porcelain pugs that were deliberately made to look like Meissen pugs. Some even used hallmarks that were easily confused with Meissen’s famed “Crossed Swords”. This is quite an old pug. The gold used to color the bells of these old pugs could not be heated to the level required to glaze, so it was painted on top of the glaze and is almost always worn off of Victorian pugs. This pug is made of high quality porcelain and very nicely molded and hand decorated. The royal blue collar has gold edging and the bow is very delicate and molded separate from the body (space between). I think the mark on the bottom is a number “109”. Condition: Excellent. Only the gold worn from the bells. No cracks, chips or repairs. Size: 5 1/4” high, 6” long, 3 1/2” deep.
