Monkeys are legacy animals for Steiff and were produced since the early years of the company. This old white Jocko hand puppet is a great example of these early toys beautifully handmade in Germany during the 1920s. Just by the way his hands are sewn you can tell how meticulously crafted this puppet was. His distinctive albino look, with pocket green eyes, gives him a captivating expression that is hard not to fall in love with. White Jocko's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This puppet has been well loved and the mohair shows play wear, gained during his almost 100 years of life. There are repairs on his felt hands and some bald spots in the body. An early Steiff button is still present. White Jocko can't wait to be loved again and join your antique toy collection!
