This lovely piece is made from solid sterling silver and features a plain, mirror polished surface which is incredibly difficult to execute. The dog is cast using the lost wax method, before 3 rigorous polishing phases are applied, resulting in this exceptional finish. The item is an excellent weight, which averages over 4ozs – enabling the recipient to feel the quality of the item in the hand. The silver dachshund is presented in a luxury gift box. To prevent the silver from tarnishing, we recommend a regular clean with an impregnated cloth – or alternatively use a soft cloth and a good quality silver polish.
