I had to share the marvelous birthday present I recently received. I saw the postage from Europe and thought that a kind friend might have sent me a piece of Swedish or Finnish art glass. But no! Out jumped this "Skotte", which I've heard translated as 'Scotsman'. Don't know if the translation is a felicitous one, but I am sure that the Scottish Terrier is most felicitous - no mistaking him! - he's the very essence of Scottiehood. From Lisa Larson's "Kennel" Series, for Gustavsberg Sweden. I don't know exactly when he was made. I have seen one identified as 1972 production, and another as 1977-79. I do know that this doggie was a limited production number, and I'm told that he is rather scarce. I had never heard of Lisa Larson before joining Collectors Weekly, but these Larson dog figurines attracted me immediately. I am delighted with this noble fellow, with his dignified bearing, his intelligent and alert face, his joie de vivre, enthusiasm, courage, wit, spirit, his bristling whiskers, and luxuriously combed coat. Larson has captured the essence of the King of the Terriers beautifully. Notice the combed 'skirt', beard, and eyebrows. She also stippled the glaze on his back. Skotte is a deep, muted green. My photos don't capture it well. 8 cm tall. Woof woof!

    Hello, scandi! So good to see you! Hope you, Louis, and family are well and joyous this evening. : )

    Thank you for your kind remembrance of The Colonel! Yes, I don't know who's watching the other more keenly, the Post Man or the Scottie, but they are both on high alert in the presence of each other. Skotte laddie sends Louis a treat! : D

    Simply lovely -- looks very obedient -- I bet you when you tell he to stay he's right on it! An air of innocent wisdom...
  17. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 2 years ago
    Dear, kind trunkman! Have you ever known a Scottie? Obiedience is not his most notable virtue. A Scottie is not referred to as the King of the Terriers for nothing - certainly not for his 'obedience'. The Scottie is afraid of nothing!, very curious and spirited. Obedience is an...ummm..."secondary" virtue. Big difference between a Scottie and a German Shepherd! Innocent wisdom is right on target, though! Now, this Skotte chap does stay right where I put him, but he's the only Scottie of my acquaintance for whom I can make that claim. : )
  18. trunkman trunkman, 2 years ago
    Now I know a Scottie -- and am the better for it!

    Mikko.. This is beautiful. Wonderful B-Day present. What stone is it? Larson is a big name in Sweden. I am a "larson" in effect. Though my family switched it to "Lawson" when moving to the USA. It is my middle name. Interestingly enough, this could be a far far off relative somehow. Far also because I carry no art skills :). Great piece and I love green. A priceless gift from Sweden! congrats ! Steve
  33. miKKoChristmas11 miKKoChristmas11, 2 years ago
    Hi, stevedeal001! Good to see you, sir! Thank you very much for your kind compliments on my Skotte dog. I too love the green. The figurine is ceramic, not stone, but it does resemble stone, doesn't it? It might be easier to discern its composition if I were a better photographer. : ) Sweden is a fascinating country. I have never been there. Have you visited Sweden? Thanks again for your kind comments! miKKo
