A few of my Chinese Crested Collectibles.
I have been collecting antique Chinese Crested prints for many years. The ones listed below are digital copies of original prints that I have in my collection.
I also own a number of limited edition and original art works (figurines, sketches and paintings). I am gradually organising these to add to my website.
'Naked King Charles Dog' by french naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707 - 1788)
'Der Turkishe Hund' by French Naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon(1707 - 1788)
The Chinese Crested Dog
"The only one remaining of a litter of six born from parents imported from China, both of which are now dead. She is two years old (1866) but has never bred in consequence of a difficulty in finding a mate of the same strain. As would be expected from her greyhound shape she is fast and active, very affectionate in disposition, so that isf the breed could be naturalised it would be acceptable to many as a novelty in the pet department."
