Vintage Thursday Dachshunds
Suzanne over at Coloradolady is hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday. Drop on over and check out all the pretties! Here is a sample of my dachshund collection. The first is a salt and pepper with a toothpick holder. Each piece is labeled Centennial Novelty, Los Angelos, Japan. It is a paper label. On the back is embossed HI FRIEND. Not really the correct term. It is not applied but within the porcelain. Next we have 2 dachshunds begging . Salt and pepper. They are identical so I photographed one facing and the back of the other. The salt does have 3 holes while the pepper has only 2. They are marked Japan. Or rather the pepper has the mark. I had to use a magnifier to see it. Faded. While checking that out I see that at one time they had collars. Perhaps it was a bit of velvet? The figurine is not marked and has lost paint from the balls? or drums. My photos do not do justice to these pieces! The brown dachsie is almost nine inches and is marked 1901 Japan. This is a male dachshund. The red brown mom and pup has a silver paper label with National Potteries Co. Cleveland O Made in Japan. The next two dachshund figurines are unmarked. They are about three inches long. I think this is a ring holder. It is unmarked. I hope you have enjoyed my show. Please visit Coloradolady for more vintage items.
