Dandie Dinmont ‘Callum’ porcelain necklace
Cute hand painted porcelain necklace of a Dandie Dinmont dog based on the artwork Callum by John Emms from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection which is 18 inches long, can extend to 22 inches, silver plated brass based chain. This pretty necklace is created by And Mary, made from 100% porcelain and should be treated as fragile.
Callum was a Dandie Dinmont terrier owned by Mr James Cowan Smith who bequeathed £55,000 to the National Gallery of Scotland in 1919. This enormous amount formed an important trust fund for acquisitions. His bequest had two conditions: the first that the Gallery provided for his dog Fury, who survived him; the second that Emms’ picture of his previous dog Callum should always be hung in the Gallery. Both conditions were fulfilled, and although Fury is long since dead, Callum still hangs in the Gallery in memory of his owner.
Each necklace is presented in an And Mary gift box.
And Mary was launched in November 2009 by husband and wife Neil and Alison and has become known for its whimsical and original hand painted porcelain jewellery, doorknobs and leather accessories.
