The moment I saw this little fellow I fell in love with him. I don't collect these kind of objects but I really liked the fox and thought that one can always use a little tray for keys or coins or old-fashioned calling cards. First I thought that fox was made of brass but at a closer look I noticed that it was actually painted with a greenish colour. On the nose and some other spots bronze shines through. The base, probably marble, is partially translucent.
When I removed some tape on the bottom of the base I found the word Austria engraved and what looks like the letter W or M.
I believe the tray might be pre 1940'.
Thanks for looking:)
