Named Staffordshire for the county in which they come from, where potteries produced these ceramic canines meant to set upon a mantel , the dogs are Cavalier King Charles spaniels named for the British monarch, Charles II (1630-1685) who was said to give these royal hounds the run of the castle. In the early 18th century, the figurines were made from china and hand-painted in a labor intensive process of repeated kiln firings. They reached the height of their popularity in the late 1800s and were mass produced in the 20th century. Today, they are highly sought by collectors and designers turning to the past for inspiration.
