Exquisitely charming, this hugely decorative Antique English Dog Portrait Painting is painted on a tin plate. I fell in love with this rascal the minute I saw him, he's holding a walking cane and looks so dapper! Signed in the right corner, he most likely dates to the early 1900's. Painted background is a metallic gold.
Painted with great personality, I believe he is a Yorkshire or Cairn Terrier or one of the other lovable terriers. This delightful painted portrait shows off his spirited character and temperament of the terrier breed. Exceptional find, with patina and some paint missing here and there, display this with your collection of antique French, American and English dog antiques. The plate has the original wire hanger on the back threaded through two small holes.
