Porcelain Meissen model of a Seated Italian Greyhound. The potting of this figure is stunning, Meissen at its best. The delicacy with which the ears and front legs and tail particularly have been potted and subjected to multiple firings are testament to the quality of the work.

There are just a few similar models made at the turn of the nineteenth-century and it is probable that the same moulds were used to create the whippet shown here.

The incised number in script 78747 has been noticed on one of two pug dogs recently for sale. There is also incised in script the number 133 with possibly an X.

The nineteenth-century Meissen moulds may have been used to create this piece
