The patterns and instructions are printed on the fabric, also displayed are the corporate seal and patent
date of 1892; includes the front, back, and bottom of the dog's and kittens’ feet. There puppies feature two
collar styles, one a red collar with bell: the other blue with bowknot.
Arnold Print Works was a Victorian manufacturing company. During the Civil War, the factory produced
and supplied cloth for the Union Armies. After the war, the company produced printed fabrics and cut & sew
dolls and animals. Celia Smith and her sister in-law Charity Smith of Ithaca, New York drew the designs for
these patented toys. Arnold Print Works was one of the world’s leading producers of printed textiles and
maintained offices in New York City and Paris.
Instructions for assembly: cut out the pieces, stitch the front to the back, stuff it; cut a cardboard piece for
the bottom and insert it before stitching the base in place. The cardboard enabled the toy to stand freely.
Uncut Arnold Print Works pieces are difficult to find. The borders are usually irregular whereas they were
taken from a bolt of cloth. The printing and coloration are crisp, stippling produces shading.
