Extra large mohair'Felix the Cat', 1920s - early original toy. Extra large mohair cat, 1920s cartoon character, Felix the Cat. Felix has a black mohair fur body - his mischievous face is a mix of black and white fur.
Black fabric is used for his open mouth and his large teeth are hand embroidered. His eyes are two large off-white felt discs with black glass eyes giving him a wicked'look.
His body is wired framed with straw filling. He does not stand freely and has a hunchback which was usual on the earlier Felix toys. He is in good shape for his age - there are patches of baldness which is usual for mohair fur toys of this age. He has some repairs - one of his arms has a lack of stuffing at the top joint and one of his feet soles has small hole with stuffing visible (last photo).
I have owned this Felix for many years and kept him in clean dry storage. This Felix is a museum piece - he is the largest'Felix' toy I acquired when collecting in the 80's and is very rare. It is hard to show the large scale of this Felix - he is seated on a child's chair (not included in sale). Height: just over 28" - large Felix toys are usually around 16".
Width: 8 across body section. Arms are 14.5" long and Legs 14" long - Front body measures 11 approx.
