  • Large Lamb

    Large Lamb

    This design created by Mary Meyer herself in the very late 1940s was slightly larger than #118 which was 6” high and Retailed for $1.69 in the late 1940s and early 1950s.  #188 was made in White and in the mid 1950s a Black version was added.  The larger Lamber – #122 also was made of White plush made by Baxter, Kelly & Faust in their Philadelphia, pa. mill. In the late 1940s and early 1950s it was stuffed by hand with garneted cotton. I can remember 4 women sitting around (on all 4 sides) of a box of stuffing pushing wads of cotton into the opening of a toy.  The felt eyes, nose and tongue were then sewn onto the toy at the proper places on their faces. In the mid 1950s sewing was replaced by cementing the facial decorations onto the toy and finally a Red satin ribbon was attached.
