Steiff, the legendary German plush toy company, is famous for its artistry, beauty, and lasting quality. The company produced incredible stuffed animals of every type, including super fun hand puppets, like this classic design of Leo the Lion. This puppet has the most endearing look. Its expressive glass eyes are an indication of an early model, likely made circa 1950s. Leo was expertly handmade in Germany using the finest mohair plush. The gorgeous airbrushing work and its pronounced tipped mane give this character a distressed look that everyone adores. It has an embroidered nose and mouth and nylon whiskers. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for head movement. Leo has been gently used and still retains its chest tag. Don't miss this opportunity to add this handsome character to your vintage toy collection!
