Bully the bulldog is among Steiff's most beloved dogs and as a hand puppet he is even more charming! Like other toys of the time, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany between 1952-1963, a relatively short production time. 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. No doubt this rare little puppet will be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
