STEIFF Rabbit Hand Puppet ~ 1960s



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 adorable Rabbit! Little Bunny uses the finest mohair plush and was expertly handcrafted in Germany circa 1960s. The glass eyes are an indication of an toy. The airbrushing work, with dark and golden hues, is remarkable. Rabbit's nose and mouth are hand-stitched and its neck is adorned with a silk bow. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet is gently used and shows nice coloring. It retains the chest tag (worn) and has lost the other Steiff IDs. Bunny can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!

Curiosity: The character "Mr. Bunny Rabbit" from the American TV Series "Captain Kangaroo" was a Steiff Rabbit Hand Puppet similar to this one!
