Ladies of the Chorus
This photogravure has been taken from Maud Earl's portfolio British Hounds and Gun-Dogs, which was published in a limited edition of 500 copies in 1902 by the Berlin Photographic Company.
The dogs shown here are Clumber Harriers called Lively, Desperate and Dora and they belonged to Her Grace the Duchess of Newcastle. The Duchess involvement with dogs knew no bounds, keeping a pack of Harriers at Clumber alongside her show dogs. Of the breed, Lady Gifford MH wrote: Indeed the breed of hound that can boast of possibly greater antiquity that any other. For did not the cavalry soldier Xenophon at the age of 24 keep a pack of Harriers, over 2, 000 years ago

FT Ch Sulhamstead Valla D'Or
Pastel 27.5 x 38.5 ins, signed
Mrs Florence Nagle, owned the two Irish Setters Valla D'Or and Sheilin D'Or. Mrs Nagle was a great friend of Aldin, the friendship being formed through Mrs Nagle's friendship at finishing school in Paris with Aldin's daughter, Gwen. Mrs Nagle trialled her Setters from the 1920s to the 1960s, during which time she made up 18 Field Trial Champions. She help strong beliefs that her dogs should be good lookers as well as good workers and both Valla and Sheilin were winners in the show ring. In the field, Sheilin was the first Irish Setter to win the Champion Stakes, which she did in 1927. The Kennel Club acquired the two paintings following the death of Mrs Nagle in 1988, aged 94. Mrs Nagle maintained that Valla and Sheilin were inseparable in life and should remain so in death and their pictures hang side by side
