When I first saw this little dog I thought of the story of the gingham dog and the calico cat. This fabric dog that reminds me of a Scottie is an old pin cushion and the tail is the tab for the tape measure. He has tiny small plastic eyes and a stitched nose and mouth. There is a thin, vinyl like collar around its neck. The white cloth tape measure has inch increments on both sides. There is a small sewn in label that reads; Foreig(n). I believe he is probably from the 1950’s or 1960’s.
He measures about 3 ½” from nose to tail, about 2 1/8” across the hind legs and almost 2 ½” to the top of his ear. He’s in nice but used condition with light wear and soiling. The tape pulls out and retracts wells and has a slight amount of edge wear. There are a lot of tiny pin holes, more can be seen on his belly than on his back.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
