This adorable combination ring holder and kitchen sponge holder is made of pottery and in the form of a Dachshund (aka weinerdog) with a "basket" on either side of his middle. As you can see in the photos he has pretty hand painted eyes and eyelashes and his tail is standing tall as he is ready to help you keep a smile on your face while doing the dishes. The holes on the bottom of the piece provide drainage for water from the sponge. He measures 6 1/2" front to back, 8 1/4" tall at the tail and 5 1/4" across his baskets. He dates from the 1930s'-1950 somewhere, most likely earlier than later. He has no maker's marks. The condition is very good, used with no chips or cracks. I photographed him straight from the consignor and will admit that he needs a wash up which I'll be glad to do before he ships if you wish. What a cutie he is! Even though he's not our usual type of stock we think he's very special and ready to take his place in your kitchen!
