Man's best friend is clearly also majolica's best friend.
Aside from cats, I can think of no other animal found more frequently in majolica than dogs. The variety is stunning. In everything from inkwells to humidors to plates to pitchers, dogs are everywhere in majolica.
Like cats, dog themed majolica always bring a premium price. Expect to pay twice as much for a piece with a dog on it as you would most other animals, but then, who could turn their nose up at one of these wonderful pieces?
