Shire horse is made from a rich bay mohair fur with long black and white mohair feathers, mane and tail. The brown mohair is haand dyed to blend into the black on his legs, back, chest and cheeks. His legs are fully jointed with cotter pin joints and may be positioned. His blaze is applique wool felt. Eyes are traditional black glass toy eyes with wire back-loops. Filling is 100% wool and he has wool felt hooves. His coat is wool tweed with a printed floral cotton lining, and is reversible. The bakelite buttons are vintage and the coat closes with press fasteners. His black leather halter is also removable.
I sew all my toys by hand, with a few seams completed on my vintage Bernina sewing machine. They are made with great care using traditional techniques. All my toys are finished with an individual sewn in tag authenticating each one as a genuine 'Little Toy Dog'.
Measurements: 21cm nose to tail, 17cm feet to top of ears when standing.
My toys are not suitable for children under 14 years and are intended as collectable, heirloom pieces for older children and adults.
All toys are gift wrapped in brown presentation boxes lined with acid free tissue paper. The box has a white grossgrain ribbon tab and a magnetic closure. There is a separate outer corrugated cardboard box for posting. All dogs are sent insured and tracked by Special Delivery in the UK, and Tracked and Signed for International deliveries.
