Vintage Retro Toy Skiing Wolf Fox ?? Incredible craftsmanship from the bygone era

Twilight has certainly put wolves back on the radar.... in the 90's we were dancing with them, in the 80's Michael J Fox was turning into one and according to the this vintage find sometime in the 60's/70's we were skiing with them!!!! 

This gorgeous flea market find is one of the cutest vintage novelty items I've seen... He stands at about 60cm tall and wears a corduroy pant and jacket, striped ribbed socks and a turtleneck.

I love the attention to detail here, this kind of quality is rarely seen in mass produced modern toys which are full of machine made synthetics and plastic. 
He would certainly make a kitsch mantel piece Christmas decoration!

Now to name him??? Harold, Arthur, Jacob II hmmmmm.........
