Pug Figurines: PP514

FAUX MEISSEN MOM & PUP ( Vintage Chelsea House Meissen Porcelain Pug Reproduction ): The Chelsea House Company of England made quite a name for themselves making high quality reproductions of famous antique figurines. Included are several pugs – like this wonderful Pug Mom & Suckling Pup based on a famous Meissen Pug Figurine. (See photo from Meissen Catalogue.) There were actually numerous companies that tried to fool collectors by making figurines very similar to Meissens and using a very similar hallmark. This was fairly easy to do in the 18th and early 19th Century before patent laws became stricter. I still see – and own – some such pugs. Chelsea House never did that, but note the detail in the molding of the muscles and tendons of the mother pug – as fine as many Meissen and Dresden Pugs. These pugs are of a nice size and will make a prized addition to any pug collection.

Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Size: 6 1/4” high, 5 3/4" long, 2 1/2” deep.
