These are some New Flea Market Finds, some older, and some older still! With two Bunnies, just for Fun! :^D
My newest Flea Market find, is the cute little Black Irish Terrier, it's an Armor Bronze type, no mark on it, but a very nice detail, and expression to the little Pup, that measures 4 3/4" Nose to tip of Tail, 4 1/2" to tip of highest Ear, and 2 1/2" wide. I think this type of Figurine, was made in the early 1900's, and very Collectable, and almost a steal at what I paid for it! The two small Yellow Dogs my other recent buys, the Happy little Cocker Spaniel, is California Pottery, and I'm pretty sure that the Boxer is also! The Smiling Puppy is 3 3/8" long, 3"high, and 2"wide. The Boxer is 4 3/8"long, 3"high and 2"wide. In the 2nd photo the Boxer is reading the inside of the Yellow Dog Advertising Postcard copyrighted 1896, for The Burg Cigar Factory New Ulm, Minn., and Postmarked the same Nov. 9, 1900. to Karl Pauling Courtland, Minn., with a 1 cent Stamp. The Card says in part "The Yellow Dog has always been considered a Mascot" "10 cent Cigar" "You make money by buying them. You make friends by selling them. Give them a try." The over 100 year old Smiling and Winking Yellow Dog two page Postcard, must have been sent to Stores, by The Burg Cigar Factory, advertising their Cigars, for sale.
The two large pottery Cocker Spaniels, we use as Yard Art with two other, different colored, that have suffered a little more than the two Posted. We've had them a long time, and would buy them for $2-$3. each, but now if I ever find them, they're $20.+, so I guess they are Collectable too, but I won't be selling these! :^D This is the Mack Bull Dog's 2nd appearance on CW, he's a Hood Ornament Design Patent 87931, and made of Brass, 5 1/2"back foot to lip, and 2"wide.
The Dachshund Planter was a gift I gave to my Aunt, years ago, because she loved the Dogs, but she passed away on Valentines Day this year, so when we were getting things from here Estate, I wanted to keep this.
The two Bunnies, Photo-Bombed, the Dogs, for Easter! :^D The Brown standing one, is 2 3/4"h x 1 3/8"w x 2"f to b, I think is made in USA, but unmarked, and the White sitting Bunny is marked Made In USSR, and 1 3/8"h, 1 3/8"w, 2 1/8"long.
Thanks for looking, all comments welcome! :^)
Next Jewelry! :^D
