Meet Ella the Dachshund, delicately engraved with a jazzy, retro pattern of overlapping circles. Like her brother Satchmo, this mod madam is so-called because my Mum's side of the family had several sausage dogs, all named after jazz musicians.

The custom-made packaging folds out into an easel-style card, perfect for keeping this little treasure on display.

Even though Ella has a sleek coat of varnish, please try not to get her wet and be sure to keep her well away from the washing machine!

Made from Tasmanian Myrtle veneer, which has a lovely grain and a beautiful warm, reddish-brown hue.

A fascinating fact: the name “dachshund” is of German origin, meaning “badger dog”. These days, they are apparently more commonly referred to in Germany by the names Dackel or Teckel.
