This is quite a cheerful guy. Grey cotton body with red wool felt wings and tail.  Stitched eyes with a wonderful purple crest.  It looks like it used to have 2 wire legs, but they fell off some time ago.  All hand sewn.  It is 6" long from head to tail, but that's because the wings arch upward.  It would be a bit longer if the wings were pressed down, but I didn't want to to that to them.  It is 2" wide.  From a Private collection.
