ALLACH LARGE GERMAN SHEPHERD PAINTED NO. 76 Superb Allach painted porcelain figure of a reclining German Shepherd, expertly crafted and colored in hues of brown, black, and beige, with a pink tongue and black eyes, approx. 9.5 in. tall, 17 in. long, marked on the base with the molded name of the designer: 'TH. KARNER' as well as the Allach trademark of stylized SS runes and the name 'Allach'. Very fine, with the only flaw being a minuscule scrape to the left side of the dog's tongue, visible only with a loupe. Designed in 1936. The porcelain factory Porzellan Manufaktur Allach was established as a private concern in 1935. In 1936 the factory was acquired by Heinrich Himmler to produce works of art that would represent, in Himmler's eyes, true Germanic culture. Production was based at Allach, the largest subcamp of Dachau, and it used slave labor in the production of these pieces. Very good.
