Porcelain Dogs, Silver Pheasants, Salt & Peppers - Vintage Lovelies New in the Boutique

I went antiquing today, and came back with a few lovely things I'd like to share with you.  These are all listed in the American Duchess Boutique on Etsy (click here).



My "find of the day."  These are two silver plated golden pheasant salt and pepper shakers, made by W.B. Mfg. Co, the same makers of the little silver sparrows from back in November.  They are Art Nouveau, dating from the very early 20th c.  There are a few examples I've found of a similar design showing a different head style, but I haven't found any of the golden pheasants.
A close up - see how nicely they're carved.  I just love them!  With how quickly the last silver birds sold, I expect these to sell soon, so if you love them, buy them quickly!  Click either photo for the Etsy listing.
Hans the German Shepherd.  He's a porcelain figurine, extremely well done, with exquisite craftsmanship and glazing.  No damage at all, and he's really quite regal, don't you think?  Click the photo for the listing.
A couple silver s&p's.  I liked the look of them, thought they would add some vintage loveliness to the table, for tea or a fancy dinner.  I can see these on the table at Downton Abbey :-).  Click the photo.
This is Charles the Boxer.  He's so ugly he's cute.  How could I resist him, he just looked at me and wheedled his way into my mind so that I had to go back and get him.  Click either photo to buy him.
He looks better from the back, huh?  Haha, I just love his ugly little face!
