A Dreamy Little Hedgehog

This weekend while we were out thrifting, the husband ran up to me with a gleam in his eye.  “Look what I found!”  The thrifting gods have not been kind recently, so I looked down to his outstretched hand with hopeful eyes.

I have to admit I didn’t know what to think at first.  I knew it was teak and I assumed it was made in Denmark, but I was only half right.  This darling little hedgehog was made in Italy, probably in the 1960s?  He reminds me of Kay Bojesen’s lovely wooden animals as well as Walter Bosse’s hedgehog ashtrays.

Our little hog also has the dubious honor of being my fastest etsy sale to date.  Good luck, little dude!  Have fun in your new home!
