He has the most gorgeous ginger shade of mohair, early webbed paws and almost all of his "Merrythought - Hygienic Toys - Made in England" label retained to foot. 16 inches in height, Treacle has replacement amber/black glass eyes, excellent early "hook" nose/smiley mouth stitching, clipped muzzle, and good strong original felt pads retained. Treacle has bald areas to his long curly ginger mohair but still a nice soft clean coverage for his years. Treacle looks so handsome in his cuddly buttoned coat with pockets for his sweeties (knitted by my mum!).
