I stumbled upon this vintage treasure yesterday while looking around Etsy, and knew right away that I had to feature it.  It’s a brass basset hound pipe rest from the 1960’s, and it’s fabulous.  I adore that droopy little face, and the tarnished brass color definitely adds to it’s vintage character.  For some reason I envision it holding a small pair of stud earrings, or perhaps it could be a chic paperweight for my office?  Either way, this little hound is must have in my book.
