Based on a classic mid century Steiff design, this Young Lion hand puppet has an adorable expression! It is a very special toy not only because of its sweet look but also by its unusual wool plush. As other Steiff puppets of the time, it was expertly handmade in Germany from 1949-54. The texture of the wool plush and the nice airbrushing work give this character an amazing distressed look that everyone loves. This puppet has endearing glass eyes and embroidered nose and mouth. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Lion Cub retains the button in ear and is well preserved. This rare little puppet will certainly be a very special addition to any vintage toy collection!
