Steiff Tabby Cat is certainly one of Steiff's most beloved characters and it is even more desirable as a hand puppet! This Kitty has a grumpy yet lovely look with expressive glass eyes. Like other toys of the time, it uses the finest mohair plush and was skillfully handcrafted in Germany during the 50-60s. I has nylon whiskers and hand-stitched nose/mouth. The striped airbrushing work performed on this puppet is also very nice. Kitty's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet has been played and no longer retains its IDs. But it is in overall good condition. Note that the bow is a new addition. No doubt this old little puppet will be a great addition to your vintage toy collection!
