She is the Girl Monkey from the 'Lawson Wood' range produced in the 1930`s by Merrythought .
Scarlett has a pressed velvet face with painted features, velvet hands and feet and ears. She has a cream coloured velvet centre piece running down the middle of her body above and underneath the skirt of her burgundy red checked gingham dress.
This cute Monkey was made in the seated position and she is unjointed . She is 17" tall and when she is laid flat she measures approximately 23".
Her arms and legs are made of a grey wool type plush as is her head.
Scarlett is softly and firmly stuffed making her a lovely cuddle too.
Her dress has kept its colour really well considering she is over seventy years Old Bless her along with her velvet covered face too.
She has a small rust mark on the front of her dress at the bottom which is quite hard to see really and a couple of small wear holes on both arms near the armpit seams this is due probably to being picked and carried but again these are quite small and not really too noticeable or detrimental to her.
Stitched on the base of Scarlett's left foot is her Merrythought cream /beige coloured REGD DESIGN label which accurately dates her to the 1930s period of Merrythought.
We have given Scarlett a nice silk bow sash around her waist , a pink feathery boah , a head ribbon and a vintage pearl necklace.

If she is not collecting carrots and cabbages then you will find her in the Herb Garden picking her favourite herbs which are Parsley and Coriander .
She is a delightful little 1930s Edith Moody rabbit dressed in all her original felt clothes.
Miss Blue Bonnet measures just 8" in height and is in good condition for her age with just a little fading in parts to her blue felt clothes but nothing detrimental at all really.
Her mohair wool body under the felt clothes is in good condition as is the silk lining in her ears and under her bob tail.
She has her original glass eyes intact too.
Miss Blue Bonnet is looking for a new burrow to live at as hers is getting a little draughty and letting the rain in perhaps someone knows of one for her?

He loves hiding slippers in the house but knows not to chew them as he will probably get scolded but his favourite pastime is burying bones and digging them up again !
Perky is a lovely little English dog dating to C1940/50 and he has a wonderful coverage all over of his light golden blonde coloured mohair.
He is stuffed firmly throughout with wood wool and no doubt a few bones and biscuits too.
Perky measures approximately 10 1/2 " in length from his tail to the tip of his nose and 9 " in height from his front paw to the top of his head.
His ears are lined inside with creamy white coloured mohair and they have internal wire supports to help hen stand up.
Perky has retained his original nose and mouth stitching perfectly and has amber glass eyes.
This cute little dog has a non operative press squeaker under his tummy but happily for us all his adorably cute face speaks volumes for him!!
Perky is a very unusual little dog with his distinctive long straight stitch under his horizontal stitched nose and long almost straight mouth stitch too. not dissimilar to the style of Pedigree bears .
Perky is looking for a new home and hopefully some little pals to play with too and comes with his ribbon neck bow around his neck and little Vintage style dog charm.

She dresses finely and always wear a hat whatever the occasion be it Christmas or Valentines day!
Lady Guinevere is a very fine creamy white coloured mohair monkey dating to C1930 as to her maker I am not quite sure but she is a monkey of quality.
She measures approximately 14" in length excluding the length of her feet and her tail and she is a five way jointed monkey and all her joints turn and move but are slightly stiff.
This Wonderful Old monkey is rather unusual in her colouring . She is made of cream /beige coloured mohair and her face and ears are made in dark brown coloured felt as are her hands and feet.
Lady Guinevere prides herself on still having an excellent coverage of mohair all over her still even at the grand old age of over seventy!
Her eyes are made of dark amber and black glass and are set behind the eye shaped cut outs in the felt material which helps to make them look very realistic indeed and Her mouth and nostrils are stitched finely in red thread .
She is stuffed with a kapok type stuffing to her body and limbs and wood wool to her head.
This fine looking monkey comes dressed in all her finery's and should she be invited to yours this Valentines she will bring along with her a small bouquet of silk roses and a wooden heart and not forgetting of course some of the Finest Valentine chocolate hearts too.
Lady Guinevere will come in true VALENTINO wrapped up style too !
