A marvelous squirrel!  He is everything you would want in a squirrel.  He's bright-eyed and bushy tailed, yet quiet and still as a mouse.  And he is superb at cracking nuts.  Finely detailed throughout, with fur marks and terrific feet that hold a walnut. His hands are ready to catch your nut and the lever in his tail works smoothly and securely to crack that nut.  Original glass eyes; traces of gilt mostly worn off, but enough to gleam when catching light at certain angles.  What a squirrel!  Stands 7 1/2" tall at his highest point, the handle of the lever in his tail.  His base is 4 3/4" X 2 1/2".  His condition is superb.  And his personality - even better!
