Up for sale is an Original Royal Copenhagen Playful Dachshund Puppy Porcelain Figurine #1408. Artist Olaf Mathiesen (1878-1953).
Olaf Mathiesen was a ceramicist & sculptor from approximately 1904-1912, & designed this puppy in 1912.
Measures approximately 3″ tall & 4.5 long, & weighs 6.43oz.
His left ear has a chip from being set down to harshly, but you can’t notice it, unless you’re looking for it. (3rd pic).
Going by the markings, I believe this piece was made in 1958. Painter’s initials are PEX.
Country/Region of Manufacture: Denmark
