    He looks like the Szelier/Sylvac Sad Sam Basset Hound, but the figurine has a felted base, so no name visible, and it seems to be a solid piece.
    I haven't been able to find a similar dog with this the floral decoration.
    (apologies for the porely blurred background :sorry:)

    Is he paper mache? Looks 1980s.

    That's what I thought when I saw it, but it's heavy. It looks as if it's paper glued on the figure, but it's the actual underglaze decoration.

    Looks like a Sad Sam that someone has decoupaged (popular in the 80s). I find the cats quite often.

    I’ve forgotten who made these. There were cats as well. Pottery figures, then decoupaged and vanished. Commercial not hobby. Yours has rather faded.

    Now he definitely has a reason to be a Sad Sam.
