Steiff, the legendary German plush toy company, is famous for its artistry, beauty, and lasting quality. Founded in 1880 by seamstress Margarete Steiff, it was later expanded by her nephew, Richard Steiff, who invented the world's first Teddy bear with movable limbs. The company 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. Like other toys of the time, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany between 1950-62. Steiff uses the nicest mohair plush and it is not a surprise that Molly presents beautifully after so many years. Despite the lack of Steiff IDs, this puppet is well preserved. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Molly can't wait to be part of your vintage toy collection!
