Soft Toy Fox Huntsman.
A Casa roma Fox in hunting attire by House of Durham, Lincolnshire. A good decorative fox in a seating position with good fluffy brush dressed in full hunting attire, tweed jacket, breeches and riding boots. There is a fabric label 'An original by, the House of Durham, made in Britain'. The Fox was possibly made in the 1970's or 80's and was also made as the more readily available pyjama case. House of Durham was a Leicestershire company which used to be known as Casa Roma.
The fox cuddly toy has had a run-in with the hounds as he has an eye missing and the material around his knees has the stuffing coming through. This is still a nice decorative piece for the hunting enthusiasts.
