KAY BOJESEN DANISH ARTICULATED WOODEN HIPPO

Dimension: H 5” X W 9”
Condition: Very good, chip on tail.

From Kay Bojesen sight:
“The Hippo was born in 1955 as a fun desktop item for managing pencils. Kay Bojesen’s imaginative family of wooden toys has a very special appeal for both children and adults. For christenings, birthdays, school leavers, anniversaries and weddings. A classic and a dear friend for life – from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.”
