This spaniel on a book is a gorgeous chalkware bookend. I estimate this piece to be from the late 1940's-1950's based on dates on other pieces in the collection found at an estate auction in Western Pennsylvania. Approximately 7" tall and 4" wide. The dog has detail on all sides, unlike many bookend chalkware pieces. This pup appears to have been named Sally Ann by the original owner, as that name has been carved into the spine of the book the dog is sitting on. There is also some chipping to the book's corners and a bit of wear to the paint on the dog's chest area. Overall, in remarkable shape for a piece around 70 yeas old!
