    Hi Everyone!!
    Here's a little vintage sleeping red fox paperweight I recently acquired. I've seen a few of these, but none painted as well as this one is. He's made of cast iron and is solid. He's small and measures 2 3/8" long, 1 5/8" wide and 1 1/8" at it's tallest point.

    Thanks for stopping in to see my sleeping red fox paperweight!!!
    Scott

      Very cool Scott! I have a red fox hanging around my property up north. That Vulpes vulpes is a very noisy guy with sharp barks, screeches, screams, and howls.

      Awe Scott. I love your “Reddy” fox posts! He’s all ready for a winter’s night, curled up in his den.
      Hoot, we had several that would come down the driveway at night, as my Father would leave out “Coon Food”. One time my sister brought a cake, and it wound up out for coon food. You should of seen this family of foxes go for that cake! What a site, they loved it! Just how many can say they fed cake to foxes, that’s my Dad for you,Ha!

      Thanks Kurt! Red fox sightings are pretty rare for us and we live in the country. However, the coyotes are very thickly populated and in the spring, summer and fall they start howling at night and get every dog in the neighborhood barking.

      Thanks Eileen! I love red foxes and had to have this one when I saw it.

      I've been collecting foxes for a very long time but I've never seen a cast iron red fox like this. What a wonderful piece! A very lucky (clever?) find indeed!

      AW......I love this guy.
    21. RichmondLori RichmondLori, 4 months ago
      he is so realistic, reminds me of my sleeping puppy, only mine is not a fox.

      JScott,
      I think your energy and dedication into finding each one of the these cast iron animals has to be one great adventure.
      Each one has its own caricature, not to overlook their excellent detail.
      Each piece is wonderful. Your collection is one to be desired.
      I am glad you shared - Lori

      VintageElisabeth,
      Thanks very much! Being a collector of foxes, I'm sure you'll agree that any cast iron fox is difficult to come by. I spotted this one and was thrilled to adding him to my collection. I have lots of rabbits, hares and dogs, but very few foxes.

      Lori,
      Thank you so very much!! Such a sweet comment. I love my cast iron animals and, yes, the challenge of the hunt is a much gratifying as adding the pieces to my collection. Thanks so very much!
