Classic 50s Dresser Caddy - A. L. Hirsch Dachshund - Rover

This debonair ceramic dachshund was created in the fifties. The purpose? To catch and organize men’s jewelry during the original “Mad Men” era. During that period, most well-turned-out men had a caddy on their dresser. A place where they could stash their billfold, rings, watch, lighters, pocket change and other miscellaneous items overnight.

This organizer is wonderful. It has the title “Rover”, which is stamped on the base along with the copyright symbol and the name A. L. Hirsch.

There is a deep opening for a wallet and a shallow one for change. The dachshund’s snout and tail curve up so that you can use them for rings, bracelets, watches. Notice I mentioned bracelets--times have changed a lot since then. J This is no longer “for men only”.

Rover would also look fabulous on a desk--maybe with a small stapler and scissors in the deeper pocket and paper clip in the other, rubber bands hanging off that cute snout. It could even be a planter (there is a hole in the bottom for drainage).

Condition: Excellent, bright and nice shine. No chips or crazing.

Size: Approx. 6” wide, 7” deep, 8-½” high
