Chessie by Guido Gruenwald
His pose kinda reminds me of Chessie, the cat who represented the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in the 30's and 40's. Chessie was on everything from calendars to coffee mugs. Back in the day when I sold antiques on Ebay, I always had my eyes peeled for Chessie memorabilia--which was highly collectible at the time.
