Vintage mechanical wind-up dog with slipper in mouth. Slipper top is red felt-like material. Both eyes, both ears and tail intact.
Overall coat has a nice sheen; typical wear, small holes, thin spots and edge stitching separation (see photos). Leg openings to permit mechanical movement are mentioned in other listings of this type (see photos of openings). Wind key escutcheon ring shows tarnish.Key winds and ratchets, spring has resistance. Legs and head move on winding, but sluggish. I have not cleaned, lubricated or prepared this item in any way, nor do I plan on breaking or damaging it by doing so. Ountry of origin is unknown and no labeling is noted. Approximately 5-1/2 from tip of nose to hanging tail.
