How Much is that {Vintage Paper Mache} Doggie in the Window?

Pin It

How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie is for sale"



I found this gem of a vintage (circa 1920s) paper mache doggie at a sale recently.


Who could say no to that face and these movable gams?



A vintage pull toy with lots of stories to tell, I'm sure.


So, how much is that doggie in the window?


This doggie at an occasional sale? $6.00.

His vintage patina? Priceless!

    He's adorable! I bet he'd still fetch a pretty penny. At least for now he has a good home!

  9. OH MY!!! I can't believe the price on that little puppy. He is very pretty and really different, but, my goodness, he is worth more than I would ever even dream of.

    Hope you are doing well and the stress level is ZERO.
