This whimsical little ceramic box from Marque Deposee of Limoges, France features a sad little dog tethered to his doghouse. The doghouse reads "MEDOR" over the door. There is a brass rim around the top and bottom of the box; this is hinged at the back. At the front is a brass clasp in the shape of a running greyhound. The box is hand decorated in many colors; the dog is brown, black, and white, the doghouse brown with a red roof, and the ground green and white. There is even a little doghouse hand-painted on the inside bottom of this little charmer. The box measures 2 3/4" X 1 3/4" X 2" tall. It is in excellent original condition. It has some age to it, probably dating from the mid-twentieth century.
