Orange Czechoslovakian Dog
Mellor Collection, Otago Museum (Image copyright, Otago Museum, Dunedin)
Mellor was an elected member or honorary member of a number of Ceramic Societies, viz., the British Ceramic Society (1905), the American Ceramic Society (1932), German Ceramic Society (1935); Czechoslovakian Ceramic Society (1935) and the Canadian Ceramic Society (1937). This orange dog is Czechoslovakian in origin and is likely to have been given to Mellor when he was made an Honorary Member of the Czechoslovakian Ceramic Society in September 1935. The dog was one of many ceramic items donated to the Otago Museum by Emma Mellor after Joseph Mellor’s death in 1938.
