The porcelain statuette has the signature of the sculptor Theodor Kärer 1884-1966. The model number is S1163, and this model was developed in 1946-1956. The statuette stands out with its incredible realism. Attention to detail and knowledge of anatomy allowed the sculptor to capture the characteristic features of this wonderful breed. It will be a beautiful interior decoration and a gift for lovers of dog figurines! Philipp Rosehal, 1855-1937, who was a long-time friend of the sculptor Theodor Kärer, offered him a position as an external employee at his factory in Upper Franconia. Kärer gladly accepted this offer. 1922 can be considered the start date of the sculptor's ongoing collaboration with the Rosehal company. Business relations with the factory lasted for at least 16 years, from 1918 to 1934, during which time Theodor Kärer created 43 models. In 1934, the artist celebrated his 50th anniversary. His love and respect can be judged by the specially decorated showcase at the Rosehal store in Munich, as seen in the photo in our post. Almost 20 years later, at the age of 69, Kärer would once again create models for the Rosehal factory as an external employee. Starting in 1953, the sculptor made 28 models for them, and if you count all his works for the factory as a whole, their number would exceed 100. The year is 1954, the mark is Rosehal, the size is 18.5 cm in height, 21.5 cm in length. The material is porcelain, and it is in excellent condition without restoration or damage.
