This Sitting Fox was the smallest of this series. I designed it in 1959 and it was made
originally in Red plush from Baxter, Kelly & Faust in their Philadelphia, Pa. mill. It had a
White plush nose and ear-linings, was stuffed with shredded foam rubber and had felt
eyes and tongue and a Black pompon nose with satin neck-ribbon.
It was later made in an Apricot colored plush with a Red satin ribbon as shown here.
This Fox was one of my favorite designs and was made in a number of sizes including
10”, 12” and 21” high Foxes.
In 1969 or 1970 we made a 6” version of this sitting Fox for Russell Stover Candies for
a Valentine product. We made 15,000 of these small Sitting Foxes.
