These two dachshunds have, as the caption says, a Mariage d'amour, as is obvious from their affectionate attitudes toward each other.
The illustrator, Fritz Quidenus (1867-1928) was born in what is now the Czech Republic. He mostly worked in Munich as a painter and designer. His been steins for Villeroy & Boch are sought-after collector's items, as are his paintings and drawings.
These prints are made at our location in Seattle, WA. They have a thick, white backing board and are sealed in clear bags. Each is suitable for framing at 11 inches x 14 inches or can be used as is for wall display. Our goal is to bring back to life these wonderful illustrations from old-fashioned, children's books and from early advertising art.
