Vintage porcelain dog. Very cubist in form. Looks like he has a harlequin outfit on. On the front there is 3 gold dots, gold detailing.
Curious thing about this dog is that it has an old button as one eye that is attached to some string that is attached to two holes in the back of the dog. The holes are original to the piece.
If anyone has information about this piece, I would love to know about it.
Thanks!

    Found a link on google for "porcelain bulldog" the pic showed up in the search, but when I went to the eBay listing the photos didn't show, but here is the link. They said it was a light light originally, made in Germany

    Great, I think the mystery is solved. The description is exactly what I have. I assume one of the glass eye fell out and the person replaced it with a button and string. I guess they didn't have any glue! Thanks again!
