Old Vintage Antique Miniature Black Mohair &Amp; Felt Cat (Teddy Bear) Circa
Funny little black mohair and felt cat with red felt jacket. Circa 1930’s

I would guess this funny little cat dates to around the 1930’s but I have never seen another one quite like it
and I don’t know if it is homemade or manufactured. The head reminds me a little of the Einco animals such
as the Tubby dogs and Fifi cats but the construction of the body is completely different so who knows!

He stands at just over 5″ tall with jointed legs but an unjointed head and arms and he is completely kapok stuffed.
His head is black mohair and his body is made from black felt and he wears a red felt circus ringmasters jacket. The jacket
has been turned inside out, presumably because the outside has faded and it is a much stronger color on the inside.

He has back painted green glass eyes, a red cotton mouth and black cotton nose stitching with black felt ears and long tail
and although there is a little bit of fading to the felt, the color is still strong and there are no holes or any other damage.
His feet have little round discs on the soles and he is able to stand up on his own.
