Dogs Pairs and Groups 1955
Players Dogs and Pets Dogs Pairs and Groups 1955 Dogs Pairs and Groups 1955 L25 - This set is devoted to man’s greatest companion, dogs, in a series of twenty-five paintings by the distinguished artist Arthur Wardle. Already a favourite with collectors for his portrayal of dogs in three other Players series, Wardle was commissioned to product this new set which are thought to have been printed in the early 1950s, but which for one reason or another were never actually issued with cigarettes. Concentrating on hounds, spaniels and terriers plus a few other breeds such as the Saluki, Borzois, Setters and everyone’s favourite the Labrador Retriever, each picture shows either two or three examples of the breed in a way which demonstrates the artist’s love of his subject, bringing out the character of each individual animal. The backs are highly informative about the origin of the breeds, their uses, famous owners etc. and reveal interesting facts such as Jack Russell Terriers are named after the Rev. Jack Russell or Cocker Spaniels were originally used in connection with the shooting of Woodcock from which they get their name. The artwork is superb and this is a wonderful set for anyone with a love of dogs. Cards size 79 x 62mm
