Outstanding Anna Pottery Cobalt-Decorated Spaniel Doorstop, attributed to Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick, Anna, IL, circa 1885, large-sized, molded figure of a spaniel with collar, locket, and chain, seated on a curved slab base with incised diamond pattern throughout. Surface covered in a whitish slip and decorated with bright cobalt slip highlights. This spaniel is the finest Anna example of the form that we have ever offered. Relatively few spaniel doorstops from this pottery are known. Provenance: A recently-surfaced example, which descended in the family of Cornwall Kirkpatrick. Essentially as-made condition. A small hole between front leg and rear leg, possibly an in-the-firing flaw, formed in an area where the clay wall had become eggshell thin. A 4 1/2" vertical firing crack to chest of dog, visible on left side of doorstop. Additional in-the-firing fissures to surface, not visible on interior. No chips. H 12".
