I found this guy a few days ago, and I was wondering if anyone has any idea what kind of dog it is, and possibly who made it and when? He's kind of chipped up, but charmingly so, and there are no marks anywhere to indicate a maker. I looked very carefully from end to end. I might guess 1930s-40s based on style. I left my hand in there for scale.
There's no hole in the bottom, but it is hollow inside. And it is ceramic (not plaster) and has a fired glaze on it (rather than paint).
Yellow is one of my favorite colors to find old ceramics in. (I also have a really great yellow wiener dog dish I don't know much about either! Maybe it was for olives, or hot dogs!) Thanks in advance!
