DRESDEN MOM & PUP PUGS ( Rudolph Kämmer Antique Style Black Porcelain Pug Dog ): This beautiful Black Dresden Porcelain Pug Dog mother and suckling puppy 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 gold bells on the burnt orange collars and the soft brown eyes - just like those of our pug, Jade. 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. You can see the Kämmer crown over “K” hallmark with a “1” beneath it. Black pugs were quite rare in the 19th Century so true black antique pug figurines are very rare. This antique-style Black Pug helps fill that void.

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