A 19th century English pencil drawing of the "Cavalier's Pets" after Sir Edwin Landseer RA (1802-1873) painting. A pair of King Charles Cavalier Spaniels recumbent on a table besides a plumed hat.


The little dogs lie side by side on a table. The Blenheim has his paws over the edge, resting his nose comfortably upon them. The King Charles nestles upon the brim of a high-crowned hat ornamented with a long ostrich plume drooping over the brim. Such a hat was worn among the Cavaliers or king's party in the reign of Charles I.; hence the title of the Cavalier's Pets.
