STEIFF Molly Dog Hand Puppet ~ 1947-53 Rare!



Steiff produced amazing dogs of every breed and Molly stands out as a big favorite since its first appearance in 1925. This character carries a lot of charm and is even more appealing as a hand puppet! Its large glass eyes and hand-stitched nose, give this puppy an endearing expression that is truly adorable. The "US Zone" cloth tag that Molly carries sewn on its arm, dates this puppet between 1947-53. Like other toys of the time is was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush. It is not a surprise that Molly presents beautifully after so many years. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. A real treasure for any vintage toy collection!
