This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Design patents are typically valid for 17 years. – Soren Aug 11 '14 at 22:01

Assuming you mean the design patent, D361,211: this issued in 1995 and expired 17 years later in 2012. So it's dead and cannot be revived.
