I thought he had been eaten by moths and has been treated but it turned out He had been used as a pin cushion by previous owner please see photos of his back. For sale is a lovely rare Farnell Dinkie dog designed by Chloe Preston in the 1920s.
He measures approximately 3 and a half inches long by 4 inches high. He has an unjointed body, jointed head and is stuffed with, a mixture of kapok and wood wool. He lost his original googly glass eye but he has had replaced with genuine vintage boot button ones that I think rather suite him, he will have his original glass eye sent with him to his new home, he has a black cotton hand stitched nose and has lost his small felt tongue. He is in good condition for his age with holes on his back which he has been treated for moths, However the son of the lady who previously owned had used him as a pin cushion!!
