The Dog Days of Summer - Part VI


Cast Spelter "Naughty Dachshund" Bookends by PM Craftsman (LEO Design)


We are counting-down the last of the "Dog Days of Summer"—a forty day period scheduled to end on 11 August.  To commemorate these waning days of Summer, we'd like to share some of our favorite "canines" from the LEO Design collection.  Consider sending one as a gift to your favorite dog lover.

A "naughty dachshund" is featured on this pair of cast metal bookends, made in the Seventies.  A bronze alloy is moulded in this highly three dimensional figural—a stack of books, with the top volume being gnawed by the problem pooch.  They are finished with an antique golden bronze patina and stand ready to hold-up your collection of favorite tomes.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.

More Dog Day items to come, tomorrow and over the following days.
