This vintage stuffed toy dog autograph hound is from the 1940s. I see a couple of now faded signatures with a 1940s date. The dog was purchased in Otsego County, NYS and includes mostly first name signatures but also some last names (Barry, Ilkier, Bernsson, etc.) as well as a reference to Gilbert Lake (in the area). The cloth dog is a sweet old thing with embroidered eyes and nose that give him an endearing expression and personality.

The dog is about 13-½” to the top of the head and about 11-½” from outermost curve of leg to rump. The fabric is yellowed and has some water stain and smudges. The ear and tail fabric is quite faded. One seam has list a little stitching. The dog is still sturdy and firm. Signatures range from still readable to barely readable. The dog is still holding on to its memories though - if only it could talk!

Please note! The U.S. postage quoted for this item is the Priority Mail rate from me in NYS to those exotic places such as California or Hawaii. The closer you are to New York, the less that cost will be. If you would like to purchase this item let me know - I can change the postage to reflect the right rate or I will refund the difference.

This will ship by Priority Mail in the U.S. or First Class Mail International to other countries.

International Buyers - Money order payments should be made in U.S. dollars.

Always happy to combine shipping. Please see our Profile and Shipping Policies for more info.
