Great antique Staffordshire figurine of 3 poodle dogs with cobalt blue base for 2 pens holder dating to the 1840's. The large poodle dog is holding a yellow flower basket with pink flowers in its mouth with a small poodle resting on the large poodle dog and a recumbent poodle next to the large dog. The pen holder measures 5.5" high and 5.5" wide. There are no chips and there is a very tight hairline that runs down the side of the large poodle. A very charming piece!
