Ceramic brindle boxer dog figurine with strange markings - who made it?


Hi All

I found this ceramic boxer dog in a junk shop in Devon, UK, and although it has a really clear backstamp, I cannot find out who made it.

I want to know who made it and how old it could be. It is a boxer dog with attitude and deserves to have its maker identified.

The challenge for me is that the back stamps are so clear and obvious, but despite looking in all my books and searching the internet, I cannot find the maker.

Is it German? I have a vintage shop on Etsy, which I run as a hobby. It is a good way to satisfy my interest in vintage items, but ensure the house does not get too cluttered.

I enjoy researching the objects I find and seeing them go to good homes.

This one is really frustrating me.

Please help.

Someone must know.

Sally

Hi Sally

Thanks for the post. Interesting and mysterious indeed.

These are strange markings and I don't know the answer. However, I will tell you my gut feeling and mention another thread with a series of dog figurines withg mysterious marks that took us quite a while to solve.

So, the other thread is here:

It began with a nicely made and modelled high quality dog figure with funny script on it that no one could identify. Turns out it was Vietnamese script and these nicely made dog figurines were made in Vietnam.

Just a tentative guess, but the marks look like they may be from an Asiatic country, so maybe your dog might emenate from that region too.

Let's take closer look at the marks so everybody can see more clearly . . .
