Toy dog with replaced coat, c.1920

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

This humble little fellow, who stands just 3.75 inches high, lost his fur coat long ago. He has tiny glass eyes and was made in China in the 1920s from papier mache covered in flannel. Thanks to an enterprising individual, our canine friend can keep warm again, and be in the height of fashion, with his new snappy coat made from layered pieces of cloth tape.

Thank you Cousin Carol for this fine gift, a welcomed addition to my collection!
