Dogs in Art, Toys And Antiques is an exhibition at DFW Elite Toy Museum, a selection of some of the most iconic dog themed European and American paintings, sculptures, and vintage/antique toys
from the Ron Sturgeon collection.
The exhibit begins with a Victorian Period Collage and continues with a delightful vintage and antique toy display, a 1930’s Store Window Tapper, and ends with the Lap of Luxury Display. The extensive Art of Dogs is impressive.

About our owner
The real heart and soul of the DFW Elite Toy Museum is its owner, Ron Sturgeon. Ron is a well-known entrepreneur in the DFW area, and a highly-sought after business consultant. Ron began as a car collector, and by 1999 he had amassed sixty antique and collector cars, but he then realized that full-sized cars were somewhat of an annoyance to store and take care of. Toy cars, on the other hand, were much easier to care for, so he began collecting toy rare toy cars. His collection began with all things Mercedes, eventually including a rare Eva Braun Mercedes Benz, but he soon branched out to include other types of antique car toys and rare motorcycles.
Today Ron’s collection is over 3,000 in number, and it includes, besides toy cars, a dog toy collection and dog art collection.
