A fine example of a late 19th century hollow bisque figure.  This darling pug is the picture of elegance.  He wears a painted collar wiith gilded bells that are glazed.  This figure is in outstanding condition with the only wear being very light, scattered surface rubbing to a few small areas.  He is marked on the back, not the bottom. The marking is worn with age and handling; the only readable part is the numeral 5.  German origin; last quarter 19th century.  Stands a shade under 4 1/2". Seat spread from paws to tail along the bottom is about 3 5/8".  This pooch will keep you happy and quiet company.  We have trained him not to bark.
