Wonderful child's scooter from the 30's. English in origin and very well loved! Small dog tag "Prince" and we love his newer western vest and tattered tail! Appropriate wear for age and use- but is still in excellent and useable condition.
He has short fur, glass eyes, vinyl tongue, and his nose is still intact but a bit scuffed. Good vintage condition otherwise. His fur is in true wire hair style. He stands in such a classic terrier pose which makes him wonderful as a display in a vignette or for photo prop. You don't see many pups...
This is such a cool idea - send L.L. Bean your address, and they'll customize a jigsaw puzzle that portrays a map of your hometown. Please be advised, some are based on older survey maps, so don't pin your hopes on seeing your own house on the map if it's a fairly new build!
