Rare Black Einco Fifi Cats

Rare Black Einco Fifi Cats
Pair of very rare Einco black Fifi cats who date c1912 and have heaps of character. The larger cat has swivel head and she is filled with wood wool. There is a non-working internal squeaker and she has some wear and fading to the black mohair, most notably on her head where the black has faded to brown. She has the original nose and mouth stitching, replaced glass googly eyes and measures 11" standing. Her smaller friend has original glass googly eyes and a swivel head. She also retains her original nose and mouth stitching, there is overall wear to the black mohair and she measures 8" long not including the tail. Such a fabulous pair of characters!


The company became Chiltern Toys although, until it was registered in 1924, it was known as Eisenmann & Co and traded under the name Einco ( founded by Josef and Gabriel Eisenmann). Gabriel was based in Germany and Josef in London and it was Josef who founded the Chiltern Toy Works in Buckinghamshire in 1908.
