Steiff Dachshund on Wheels
Look who just came home with me! A Charming Dachshund on Wheels

A Russet felt Dachshund with Glass eyes and a stitched nose, with some airbrushed detail, FF button in ear and mounted on chunky wooden wheels. The wheels are "eccentric" meaning the axis is not central, so that when pulled along, the dog appears to bob up and down. When he left the factory in Geingen he would have been wearing a leather collar.
He is 25cm long and was produced circa 1912
A similar one sold at Christies in Oct 2010 for around $800
