STEIFF Lumpi Dachshund Hand Puppet ~ 1965-66 Rare!

Lumpi the Dachshund is a highlight among Steiff's dog characters. And this puppy is special not only because of its sweet look but also because it was produced only between the years 1965 and 1966, making it one of the rarities of the post-war era. Like other toys of the time, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany using the best materials. Its open mouth with a hanging felt tongue is simply adorable! Its original colors seem to have faded over the years but the detailed airbrushing work gives it a distressed look that is also very appealing. Lumpi's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This puppet is well loved but is still very charming. It retains the button and an illegible ear tag that would read #0317,06. The bow also shows wear. Sweet Lumpi can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!

  • Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. Well loved with faded colors. With button and illegible ear tag #0317,06. Worn bow. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.

    STEIFF Lumpi Dachshund Hand Puppet

    I received the puppet on July 6th and Nancy saw it for the first time yesterday. She was ecstatic and fell in love with it immediately. Lumpi exudes personality - what a sweet expression on her face! She's in fabulous condition and we couldn't be happier. As usual Marcus goes above and beyond what any other seller would do. His knowledge of puppets is exceptional and I appreciate learning about the puppets we've purchased. Marcus, you are an amazing person and I appreciate the personal touch. Thanks for letting me know that this puppet was available and helping us grow this ever expanding puppet family.
