The sculpture of the standing long-haired dachshund is executed in a slightly naturalistic style and it lacks any striking stylization. It originates from the interwar period and was produced in the Meissen porcelain manufacture. The material used is the so-called Bötger’s earthenware which was devised by the porcelain inventor, Johan Fridrich Bötger, in the second decade of the 18th century as a certain lowest stage of white porcelain. The material was re-discovered in the 20th century and was used for small-series products. The finishing of the dachshund figure, model no. 240, should recall bronze.
