Objects Of Design #342: Sausage Dog

You might be lucky enough to live in a house with no draughts. Might as well stop reading here then. For the rest of us, this gorgeous lavender filled sausage dog will guard the room from those biting draughts that are a feature of the British winter and the Victorian house.

As it contains no synthetic fragrance, it should remain gently scented for up to two years – just squeeze gently to refresh. His ears and feet are leather and he has two button eyes.
