An early porcelain model of a Dachshund by the German factory Nymphenburg.

“Only a dachshund can wear such a stoic expression. Especially when it is a high-born one. The sculptress Wera von Bartels understood that when she immortalised this self-confident male in porcelain in 1906. The model for this masterfully executed sculpture was “Labori 2nd of Bergsteig”, a prizewinning male dachshund, whose photo went round the world in the form of a postcard.”
