BLUE BASIL BEAUTY ( Vintage Basil Matthews Porcelain Pug Dog ): I have sold numerous Basil Matthews Pugs, but this one is unusual in having light blue flowers decorating her pillow rather than red. As usual it has its own special comical face. All his pugs are hand modeled and hand decorated. They all have a touch of whimsy that makes you smile. Matthews started producing his little fanciful figures in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, in 1946. Now deceased, his beauties will become harder to find and even more valuable. No pug collection is complete without one. This pug, seated on his plush flower decorated pillow, has Matthews’ signature on the opening of the felt covered base and its original “Basil Matthews” sticker. Condition: Excellent. Size: Pug 2 1/8” high, 1 3/4” long. The base is 2” long, 1 5/8” wide & 5/8” high. Total height 2 3/4”.
