Please don’t judge me but I have this piece.
I could say I was asking “for a friend”
I’m surprised my wife hasn’t commented yet as he was sat on the table at lunch today.
Stoneware, sack is hand modelled, dog looks like he is all hand made & hand painted too.
Felt base, no mark.
If he is all hand made would that suggest an amateur making something for fun as would be pretty time consuming.?
Or did I miss out on the Animals in Sacks Collectors Series in the 1970s and there’s loads of them out there?
Thank you!

Looks cast. Might be resin rather than pottery

I know what you mean. It looks like the resin pigs in the bath etc. I’ve just checked with hot needle and doesn’t go in at all. I was pretty sure it is clay but then stripped back the felt and it looks very odd. A white resin stuff that a needle doesn’t go into? A hard plaster stuff? Or a porcelain? I’m a bit mystified but I’m more than happy if you reassure me it’s resin c**p!

Cheers :) Could be by the lady who makes sheep; she uses the same technique for their woolly coats. I had a few at one time. I'll look up the name.

I’ve just emailed Sarah to ask. I’m not sure what it’s made of though.

Looks like plaster of Paris. If you scratch the underside with your fingernail does it leave a chalky residue?

Not Sarah D’Arcy. She thought it was a bear. I thought pug.
But Grumpy, it’s not plaster, it’s very hard and I think maybe Naomi was right with a resin stuff - but a hard one that doesn’t melt? I don’t know what stuff ornaments are made of these days. So probably one for the car boot. Thank you- it’s really helpful
