Dachshund Treasures!

Our very dear Dachshund friend Sabrina Su (Beanie Su) sent us some beautiful Dachshund items to list. It has been so much fun to photograph and list these lovely collectibles.

Here is a Christmas Dachshund stuffed animal toy with a little pouch for inserting a small gift (like jewelry) or treat:

This adorable little Dachshund toy walks, barks, and turns his head alertly.  So cute!

This glossy black figurine has pretty red trim and beautiful vintage lines.  I would date this little guy as 1950's:

This precious pair are made of molded plastic.  They are vintage 1950's to 1960's, and each little molded plastic toy dachshund wears a little hat.  They are so cute and miniature in scale!

Here are 2 photos of the most unusual Dachshund salt and pepper set.  It is in two pieces -- front of Dachshund and back of Dachshund.   So cute!  Look at the lovely detail on the Doxie's face in the second photo:

This vintage glass Dachshund is Mid Century vintage (1950's to 1960's) and has beautiful retro lines.  His face and tail are gold and his body is clear glass.

This white ceramic or pottery Dachshund is a planter, but would also serve well as a dresser valet or desk caddy.  He is very well made (heavy) and absolutely lovely.  He is vintage, probably 1950's.

This pewter brooch is a show stopper!  It is signed by Rune Tennesmed, Abstract Modernist jewelry designer from Sweden.  It is Mid Century Modern vintage and absolutely beautiful ... also very hard to find.

Perhaps my personal favorite, I love the sweet expression and glass eyes on this vintage Christmas Dachshund figurine.  There is a red bow, bell, and holly around his neck.

And here is the sweetest Dachshund you'll find here ... our great friend Sabrina Su, also known as Beanie Su!
