Velvet Rabbit or Dog

Choice of Velvet Rabbit or Dog
Almost all my animals are inspired by an antique animal which I have in my collection. The velveteen rabbit was the very first animal that I made, and remains one of the most popular ones that I sell. The rabbit is done in velvet and has German glass eyes and a nose stitched with embroidery floss. He is stuffed with saw dust. This rabbit has been given to many expectant mamas as a gift, but is not meant to be played with by young children. Hopefully he will become a new generation antique.
This dog is constructed with velvet and stuffed with saw dust. He also has German glass eyes. The original antique dog in my collection did not have eyes or a tail when I found him. The only thing that remained was the old thread which they had been sewn on with. I have taken artist’s creative license and have added German glass eyes and a tail. He is a very sweet doggie. He is not intended to be a toy for a very young child, but hopefully he will be passed down to many generations.
