Circa 1954 CrackerJack prize. As far as I can find this was the only chow figure style that crackerjack offered for prizes in their caramel popcorn and nut boxes. A number of dog breeds were done that year in a variety of colorful plastics. I have seen this chow in many unusual colors and combos of colors
In my opinion, it is quite a nice depiction of the breed and I am pleased to have this unique mauve toned little fella as well as a chocolate brown one in my personal collection.

The Cracker Jack Company was established in 1871 and the motto most of us remember from our childhoods was “Candy coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize….that’s what you get from Cracker Jack” Read much more about the history of the popular confection and the prizes offered over the years at this link.
