Pug Figurines: PP335 A & B

PERKY PUG PAIR (Vintage Basil Matthews Porcelain Pug Dogs ): Basil Matthews was a master in creating small porcelain animal figurines – often with a touch of whimsy, as shown in this Pair of Pug Princess’ on their Plush Pillows. Since these pugs were all hand modeled and hand decorated, no two are exactly the same, but these 2 make a very nice pair – not easy to find. For some reason most of them I have seen are posed like the one on the right.  Matthews started producing his little fanciful figures in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, in 1946. Now deceased, his beauties will become harder to find and more valuable. No pug collection is complete without at least one – and even better - two. Both pugs have his signature on their base and their original “Basil Matthews” stickers. Condition: Excellent. Size: 2 3/4” high, base 2” wide. The base of the pug on the right is 1 1/2” deep and on the left 1 3/4” deep.
