About the object

An extremely rare Victorian cast silver novelty Scent Atomiser made in the form of an excited terrier, sitting up on his haunches in an appealing begging pose, with coloured glass eyes, a circular screw-off base and a button at the back of his head which, when depressed repeatedly, sprays scent, most imaginatively through the act of micturation (or peeing).

By William Leuchars, London 1880, incised ""LEUCHARS & SON"" on the base.
