    A charming carved beaver,.
    I think this guys eyes are plastic rather than glass which'd probably date him to around the '50/60s
    I think he's adorable.
    I love the carving style, which is ANRI like, though he could be from just about anywhere, and his inquisitive stance.

    Comments always welcome :)

    Thank you

      Thank you Vetraio:) I think so too. The beaver is only 7cm tall. Nicely stylised.

      I do like him....I hope he's staying:-)

      Hi Peggy, you bet he's staying. I didn't get him cheap, it was a treat from eBay :)

      Thank you Karen :) I was so relieved it didn't get damaged. The plate, a nice iron Stone Willow Pattern, was destroyed :(

      You put your son with the bears!? What a cruelty ;-)
      Ha, drop the kid next time... (joking, poor boy!)
      Lovely beaver attitude, he has bright lively eyes!

      Thanks Kyratango. If I could put him away with the Bears I would ;)
