BLACK BEAUTY MOM & PUP ( Rudolph Kämmer Antique Style Porcelain Pug Dog ): This beautiful Dresden Black Porcelain Pug mother and suckling puppy was obviously copied from the famous similar Meissen model. This mom and pup were made by the Rudolph Kämmer Porcelain Factory of the Thuringia region of Germany. Famous for its porcelain since 1862, Kämmer - along with Meissen, Thieme and Nymphenburg - are the four German porcelain factories making the highest quality hard paste porcelain pugs, hand painted by the finest porcelain artists and using the 19th century style pugs - longer legs and muzzle and cropped ears. My favorite Kämmer Pug features are the large golden bells on the burnt orange collars and the soft brown eyes - just like those of our own pug. The Kämmer pugs are less expensive than similar sized Meissen & Thieme Pugs because they are made from post WWII molds, as opposed to the antique molds the others have retained (see photo with soda can for size). You can see the Kämmer crown over “K” hallmark with a “LK” beneath it, probably the artist's initials. Add this Black Beauty to your collection!

Condition: Excellent.
Size: 8" high, 8 1/2" long - tail to foreleg, 4 3/4" wide. Seven bells 5/8” in diameter.
