This is a great little item for a sewing room or workroom - it is a little string or twine holder with a little inclusion to the side to hold your sewing scissors.

This wee string holder was made in the late 1950s or early 1960s by Arthur Wood - it has its original paper label on the top and marked with all details on the back.

It takes the form of the head of a little cartoon dog - with strange big blue eyes and rosy pink cheeks.

There are two holes in the back - you would put two little fine nails into your wall and the head would slip into them - you would have popped in a round ball of twine and pulled the end out through the little hole in his mouth. Mr Doggie wears a red ribbon and there is a loop in it to the side where you would keep little scissors at hand to quickly cut your string.

You often find the cats - and the little dogs are a little more difficult to source.

This one is in good vintage condition - he has no chips or cracks, and there are no repairs to the bow (these often get damaged and stuck back on) - and his paintwork is all present. There is a fine routine craquelure all over - which you commonly find with these models due to the type of glaze used in the manufacture - it is not disfiguring when the holder is on display on your wall - only when you look in close up. This is reflected in my asking price.

These wall plaques are very cute and now getting harder to find.
