Standing Grey Cat
Standing Cat - This was a very early Mary Meyer design. Mary Meyer herself designed that Standing Cat - it was made in Grey and White -about 8" high - Made of rayon plush from Baxter, Kelly & Faust in Philadelphia, Pa - stuffed with cotton in the early days and later with chopped foam rubber.
The eyes were the earliest version with French Knot of eye centers and the nose and tongue were also sewn on to the toy. In the mid 1950 we started cementing them on. #162 later version - late 1950's - Note the center of the eyes are small square White felt pieces instead of the French Knots. Patterns, color, etc remained the same.
