Accessories 101: Staffordshire Dogs

e dogs are some of the most traditionally sought-after porcelain décor. Dating back to the 1700s for working class families to decorate their homes, the pottery comes from companies in the County of Staffordshire, England. Staffordshire spaniels come in many sizes and color combinations, with the all-white figurines being the most popular.

While the look is quite traditional, today’s designers are mixing these figurines in more contemporary and modern contexts. The popularity of the Staffordshire has even carried into major retail outfits, which have created updated versions of the look. Obviously, the original antiques are both hard to come by and expensive. But reproductions can look just as great and are readily available. Either way, the dogs are sure to add a touch of timelessness to any space.
