“The Mascot of Business”


This Mongol “Woof-Woof” was made by the Eberhard Faber Company, sometime in the 1920s or 1930s. Though it’s difficult to see, there is a hole such that a pencil can be held in the dog’s mouth. Though it seems this mascot didn’t catch on for the company, at least it wasn’t called the Mongol Mongrel.
