THAT FEELS SO GOOD! ( Meissen Porcelain Pug Dog ): This is one of my very favorite Meissen Pug models. Most are stationery standing or sitting pugs, but you can just see this pug scratching away to get that pesky flea. I’m not entirely sure when the mold for this pug was first made, but most “action” pugs were first modeled in the 1700’s by Johann Joachim Kaendler, Meissen’s most famous porcelain artist. I love seeing and feeling the connection and continuity between 18th Century pugs and our 3 girls that Meissen Pugs provide. These pugs are made of the very finest hard paste porcelain and decorated by some of Europe’s finest porcelain artists. If you own, or have seen, more than one of this model, it is interesting to see that the position of the legs are always different –set however the “thrower” desires and positions them before the final firings. On the base, along with the famous Meissen blue crossed swords, are the impressed model number “78770”, “9AK” – probably the modeler and a red painted “2802”, the decorator’s number. Condition: Excellent. Size: 2 1/4” high, 2 7/8” wide, 2 1/2” deep.
