'Ophelia': portrait of an épagneul Breton, ca. 1880

Image of 'Ophelia': portrait of an épagneul Breton, ca. 1880

Cabinet card of an 'Epagneul Breton' or Brittany Dog called 'Ophelia'.

Albumen print on a stiff cardboard with gilt borders. No photographer mentioned. Name of the dog in pencil on the verso. Glue traces on the back.
Interesting detail: she is probably suckling due to the large mammary gland.

Beautiful portrait.
