The Papillon is an old breed and it’s said Marie Antoinette had a small spaniel, which looks like a Papillon. This breed has two versions; the Papillon with is French for butterfly, due to its standing, hair-covered ears, and the Phalenes, which is French for moth and is the drop eared of the same breed, in fact, both types can be born in the same litter and are shown together as one breed. The Papillon has a long, silky single layer coat which must be either parti-color or white with patches of any color. An important note here is that the AKC says both ears must be completely colored on the front and back or it is considered a fault. This tiny spaniel is a happy, friendly adventurous companion dog and they should not be shy or aggressive. They range in size from 8 to 11 inches tall at the withers, and should not be over 12 inches tall. AKC recognized this breed, the two versions together, in the Toy Group in 1915.
We take one of our Tiny Ones figurines and mount it inside a three dimensional Sleigh. This ornament is a little red sleigh with green interior, gray runners on top of a pile of snow. Each one has a gold tone cord for handing this unique collectible decoration on your Christmas tree, or displaying it anywhere. The base measures 3 ½” X 1 ¾” with felt covered bottom. The green interior has tiny gold buttons to match the gold trim on the outside of the sleigh. The empty sleigh stands about 2 ¼” tall, and the figurine would rise above that. The picture perfect decoration for the entire winter season! “Over the river and thru the woods…..” pops into mind. All items are individually blister packaged, ready to give as a gift, or hang in your store. Great item for that special someone!
