Wire Fox Terrier Stuff #5

I am coveting this unusual retro fox terrier figure from the Ćmielów factory (pronounced “tschmee-loov,”) in Poland. It was designed by Mieczyslaw Naruszewicz in 1965, who I believe was part of the Institute of Industrial Design and it is now being reproduced at the factory using the original restored moulds.

Supposedly inspired by the work of Henry Moore and Picasso, there are many other lovely dog sculptures by different artists in the collection so go and take a look...
