Augustus is now Sold
Along with the Soldier Bears a much smaller amount of little black cats were also made around the time of WW1. Augustus is my version of one of these.
Augustus is approximately 4 inches tall when standing and made from the last of my stubbly black mohair. I have aged him for a "well loved" look. He has green glass cas eyes and a red stitched nse and white whiskers. He is fully cotter pin jointed and filled with kapok, used in the making of early toys. He has steel shop in his body for a nice weight.
Augustus wears a bronze coloured "Hope" charm around his neck on a piece of red vintage ribbon.
