Fox Ornamental Toy Conversation Piece Dressed Copper Plush Toy Vintage Companion Toy Decor Piece Fun Gift for Husband Kid Adoption Present


Fox Ornamental Toy Conversation Piece Dressed Copper Plush Toy Vintage Companion Toy Decor Piece Fun Gift for Husband Kid Adoption Present

This Dressed Copper Plush Toy is made from a pattern I have used since I made my first cuddly Mr. Fox in the 1970's as a Fun Gift for my late Husband. Other versions have proved popular Any Occasion Gifts for those wanting to surprise Friends and Family Members with a Fun Gift, or those needing a Hostess present, or as a Kids Adoption Present.

Our Fox Ornamental Toy's Dimensions are:

Height: 18.0 inches from between the ears, over his long nose, to the front tip of his boots.
Weight: 9.0 ounces (250 gms) approximately.

He is called Joseph Fox in the COLDHAMCUDDLIES Shop - but you can call him any name you like as soon as he becomes a member of your family. Our Listing indicates how Joseph and his fellow Foxy Friends (or Coyote cousins) can look when using different faux fur or plush fabrics and dressed in different ways. They are ALL based on the same pattern.

This Vintage Dressed Toy's outfit consists of Beige Corduroy Trousers fitted into tan boots made from glove quality leather. This leather is sourced from a Glove and Bag Manufacturer in Warminster, Wiltshire, which holds the Royal Warrant for these products from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of United Kingdom. He has a Buchanan Tartan lined waistcoat and a Yellow Felt Cravat at his neck. (You can better see how the Buchanan Tartan looks when used as a dress for some of our Lady Fox Toys by clicking here:)

The coat this Dressed Toy Ornament wears is made in Red Wool fabric, with a cotton poplin lining, and is fitted with a golden button threaded through a handmade thread loop. The jacket will open to give a better view of his waistcoat (which is sewn in), but the Fox cannot be undressed any further. He is made to suit his role as an Ornamental Conversation Piece, rather than a Cuddly Toy - but is equally suitable for either role.

His Head, Paws and Ears are made with Copper Brown Plush fabric, and he has Amber Plastic Eyes fixed with metal safety discs. The Ears are lined with tan satin. This Collectible Fox Toy has a plastic nose, also fixed in place with a metal safety disc. (Other Dressed Fox Cuddly Toys can have their noses embroidered with black double knitting yarn. Please leave a message in the "Notes to Sellers" section of the Etsy Order Form, or e mail me - at coldhamcuddlies [!at] - when purchasing this OAAK Boy or Girl Gift to let me know which nose version you would prefer).

Like all COLDHAMCUDDLIES, this Ornamental Vintage Toy is made in smoke free and animal free surroundings. and is stuffed with polyester which conforms to the following British and European Safety Standards:

BS 1425 for cleanliness: BS5852 for flammability: BS EN71-3:2013 Compliance for Soft Soys sold within the European Union.

This stuffing CAN be washed at 60 degrees although in the case of these Nursery Decor items, I would not recommend contact with water if at all possible. The dyes involved in the clothing fabrics used to make them may not be colour-fast, nor would the leather used for Joseph Fox's boots respond well either.

Joseph Fox is not the sort of Toy that encourages folks to play rough. He prefers to stand and survey his surroundings. However he can be a long-lasting Toy. There is one Fox I made in the 1970's which has recently moved to live in Plymouth,Devon, UK with my nephew's young daughter - after living happily in Normandy, France with her Grandmere since the early 1980's, having been a Patient in our Stuffed Animal Toy Restoration Clinic -§ion_id=10242697 - in 2011. He needed a re-stuff and got a brand new Coat and Leather boots, (replacing Felt Boots) because the originals had faded after nearly 20 years exposure to bright sunshine.
