This vintage scotty dog figurine is a unique little item. This terrier is up on his haunches with front paws on a basket. The previous owner used his basket to hold a small glass perfume vial that is connected to string around his neck. His little basket could certainly be used for other treasures as well. Would be a sweet way to give a small gift of essential oils. His face is painted somewhat crudely but is still darn cute! I am not certain what he is made out of. I have seen similar figures described as saltwater or salt stone which was a popular back in the 40's. Though this one is not dated, I discovered a similar figure that was dated by the owner as being presented as a gift in Christmas 1941.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or crazing. A couple darker spots on his front leg and side of tail probably from being handled there. His face is painted somewhat crudely but is still darn cute!
Measurements: 4” tall. The bottle that is in the basket is a little over an inch tall.
