The ultimate Scottish Terrier figurine collection

Long-time readers of the Scottie News may remember that I’m not a huge fan of Scottish Terrier tchotchkes — or any tchotchkes for that matter. But I’m going to make an exception for this recently discovered Scottie figurine collection from Olvik2001 on Flickr.

I’ve sent the curator a note asking for details so stay tuned.

Update: We’ve got the deets. Olga writes:

Thank you for your attention to my collection … The first few figurines I received as a gifts more than 10 years ago when I had a Scottish terrier. Now he’s gone, but I continue to collect scotties. The main part of my collection was formed during the last two years. There are 78 figurines of porcelain, ceramic, glass, stone, bronze and rubber in my collection. The sizes of dogs are 1-7 inches. Almost all dogs produced and bought in different cities of Russia, some of them are hand-made.
If you have questions please contact me.

Best regards,
Olga.

  1. These tchotchkes are funny/cute/silly/interesting and true. The last one is identical to Maggie’s stance when scouring trees for squirrels. I have photos (minus the tongue out).

    1. I like the second to last Scottie, who’s all flopped out. I’ve seen that pose plenty.

  2. The blue & white ones are from Gzhel, a town built on a deposit of white clay. It was after Peter the Great’s Grand Tour of Europe 300 years ago that Gzhel was commissioned to produce the clay pottery painted with cobalt, in imitation of the Delft he saw in Holland. Gzhel is not as fine and delicate as Delft, but has many different uses, and is hand-painted and fired the old fashioned way in kilns in a factory in the town of Gzhel. Many of the artisans have several generations of their families working there.

    1. Thank you for that. I’m always impressed by how knowledgeable Scottie News readers are.
