‘BERNIE’ ANTIQUE DOG ON WHEELS, POSSIBLY ‘FADAP’ FRENCH c. the 1930s-1950s.
Very old, antique dog possibly by FADAP, a French maker. But certainly very old indeed and by a good maker of the period. He has a woolly plush realistic fur to the main part of his body, and mohair to his legs which is now almost worn away with age. He is all original except his glass eyes which are replacements. His metal frame and wheels are original with age wear to be expected with such an old well-played with ride-on dog. He has lost his ears but his tail is original but has been refixed to his back. He has been well-loved and lost a fair amount of fur mostly on his legs. A wonderful old character, few survive so old, so he is a rare find. He is still strong and a wonderful addition to any home.
Height from the floor to the top of his head 21″ (52cm) Length from his nose to end of the back wheels is approx 27″ (58cm) Width from outer wheel to outer wheel is 13″ (33cm) Sorry UK only for postage he would be very expensive to post abroad. Email us for his photo file. Price £195
