We spotted these two little wind up doggies at an antique flea market just before Christmas. Probably German and circa the 1930s, they measure 4 and 1/2 inches long. When their keys are wound, their tails spin in wild circles, while the ears on the larger dog flap back and forth in spectacularly comic fashion.
Asta, Nick and Nora Charles' dog in the Thin Man movies.
The doggies are just the right size to hang out in my doll kitchen.
