Bully the bulldog is among Steiff's most beloved dogs and as a hand puppet he is even more charming! This is likely an early model handcrafted in Germany during the 1950s. His large glass eyes and hand-stitched nose with an elaborate velveteen muzzle, give him an unmistakable expression that is both grumpy and endearing. Steiff uses the nicest mohair plush and the airbrushing work on this puppet is also remarkable. His head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Bully has lost his IDs and his bow is worn. There are some small bald spots here an there but he still presents nicely. No doubt this rare little puppet will be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
