    When Mom passed this year, we found a box of my Grandmother's dog collectibles. All were wrapped in Miami newspaper dated 1963 so everything in the box we know is older than 1964 at least (all wrapped in same paper and since only 1 'layer' was used..some were regrettably damaged).

    Not an expert on dog breeds, nor collectibles. I found this site when I was looking for help in identifying vintage costume jewelry I inherited from both my Mother and Grandmother.

    This one is cute, interesting position. Unsure if the 'hole' was to put in a plant, a small vase or what. 'JAPAN" stamp on bottom. Any help with verifying breed (may be a 'mutt') and possible decade/maker is appreciated!!

    Mystery Solved

      Could be a posy vase. Or, a pencil/pen holder. The red backstamp 'JAPAN' dates this piece (at the earliest) to just after WWII.
      As for the breed, I vote for Retriever.

      Good point on the pencil/pen holder. I really like the tail on the back of him. Japan seems to have made ALOT of the dogs I have pics of (most not posted yet). I have one that looks like a "Lady and the Tramp" knock-off without Walt Disney not sure if they just did it without permission or what...will post pics later when cell phone rechargers.

      Efesgirl - thanks for your help!!!
