Rare, miniature hand-painted ceramic plaque, with a head study of a Pointer. Signed by the artist, J.Littler.
J.Littler was a painter who worked for the Doulton Burslem porcelain factory during the 1890s and the style of this item suggests that it dates from the same period. It is a very rare item and may even be unique.
Very good condition with no chips or cracks. The reverse is unglazed. This item was probably created to be part of an item of jewelry, such as a brooch or a pendant - and would look excellent if mounted as such.
Size: 1.75" x 1.25", oval.
