Here is a variation on the famous dog pottery from
Colima. It is made in the shape of a planter. These
pieces are usually seen in the natural clay color with
no finish. I added the waxed fininsh to this one. When
I got it had been painted with brown paint and then
the owner had tried to remove the brown paint. It was
not a pretty sight. I cleanerd it up, but it did not
look right, it was stained and washed out looking. So
I rubbed some mahogany color boot wax on it and it took
beatifully. The pottery is in excellent contion with
no chips, cracks or hairlines. It measire 8" long,
5 1/4" wide and 8 3/4" tall.
The tradition of the pottery dogs of Colomia goes back
thousands of years and theyhave been found in ancient
tombs. They are made in many shapes. This is the first
time I have seen one like this. It would be a great
conversation piece on your desk and good for holding
pencils and pens.
