This sweetly adorable and hand decorated figure is by Swedish ceramicist and designer Lisa Larson for Gustavsberg Ceramics.
The rounded form and attentive expression really help make this piece live up to its name.
This piece is one of 14 that was designed in 1972 as part of the 'Kennel' series designed by Larson. This design is part of Larson's represented work at the Swedish National Museum, Stockholm.
