A larger size, and very hard to find, Dinky dog. These dogs were made by both Merrythought and Farnell. It is very hard to tell the difference. However Merrythought always labeled their items, and there is no sign of there ever having been a label. Dinky is made from a velvet fabric, which is still nice and clean. Dinky Dog was a character created by Chloe Preston, and they toys were made in the 1920's. This example is 9 inches long, not including his tale. He has a few small marks on him. There is a small split on his face, which you can see in the photos, and a small hole on the underside of one ear.
