Vintage Italy Montrose Label Poodle Figure
I have been going to an antiques auction house for a few months now and the last one we went to was a ripper a lot of depression glass, ceramics, old toys,and crockery etc
As I love old things I bought quite a few items including six boxes full of treasures. I found this poodle upside down in a box with other various ceramics, amazingly not broken, searched high and low and finally found one other at the Museum of London.
Still don't know anything about it,she has a rose and three green leaves on the underneath, underneath the glaze, and Italy stamped on the left foot, and a Montrose foreign sticker on her back.
Must be a girl as she has a pretty pink bow. I have been collecting uranium glass after finding two pieces in one day at the markets about six months ago, my girlfriend was so jealous as she had never found two pieces in one day.
To digress, I don't have one thing that I collect, its various and varied ranging from orange plastic kitchenware and small plastic scales, found one for ten cents at an oppshop,pyrex,anchor hockingware, some avonwares, all types of horses including donkey and carts,depression glass,pressed and cut glass vases and decanters, uranium glass,salt & pepper shakers, small animal figures, Enid Blyton books, Dr Suess books and clocks, sylvac animals and small jugs,money boxes,silverware, old bone handled knives and so on and so on, and from the same sale got a nice piece of perline glass which is a favourite at the moment, along with a camel I found at a garage sale Saturday which is fully loaded with blankets tiny jugs and baskets, a goatskin made with real leather
waterbottle and a tiny wooden chest with silver camels inlaid, so realistic so cute.
So I am an eclectic collector bit like a magpie if its pretty, unusual,or unloved, I will probably give it a home.
Therein is my problem as I have a hard time letting go of any of my treasures its getting out of hand I wish I could just collect one thing.
I blame my girlfriend who has recently left her husband and is living with me at the moment, she is a mad collector and I have caught the bug off her as she frequently brings home things I like from the opp shops.
Well there you have me in a nutshell.
Hope anyone can help me out with this poodle as its doing my head in trying to find out anything about it.i
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can help me out
