The handsome collie originated as a shepherd’s dog in the highlands of Scotland where it functioned as an all-purpose farm dog. This adorable figurine is created with exceptional artistic detail from the various color tones to the form and expression. The label has been peeled but I am certain this came from Japan as most of the collectibles from the 1950s did, and the way the eyes are painted is true to Japanese workmanship. Lightweight porcelain bisque in a matt finish, dark brown+ cream+ tan colors, very good condition with one note: there is a small area on the back where the finish has been scratched (see picture). C1950s, measures 6 inches long x 3 inches wide x 5 inches tall.
