Type LA Wolf
Type LA Wolf early 1950's.
He is one of the rarest Animal characters and this one is in lovely condition. he is often seen with cracked or misisng wooden ears, or thinned fur.
The covering of fur is very good, he retains both wooden ears.
The felt tongue is aged, he has a brass ring for the mouth to open by bobbing the string from an elastic band which has been replaced.
Often the bamboo limbs would have paint loss, this one has no loss but I don't see any evidence of overpainting whatsoever and the entire puppet is good, so I think it must have just survived well.
Original stamped box is shelf worn.
