STEIFF Tabby Cat Hand Puppet ~ 1950-60s

Collectors and cat lovers alike fall in love when a Steiff Tabby Cat appears as a hand puppet. And this Kitty has a truly lovely expression with endearing glass eyes, an indication of an early model handcrafted in Germany circa 1950-60s. Kitty's nose/mouth is hand-stitched. The striped airbrushing work performed on this puppet is really nice. Tabby's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet has been well loved! It is missing all Steiff IDs and the plush has yellowed/soiled with time. There are some matted/bald areas, gained during its many decades of life and the bow is very worn. But all imperfections don't detract from its sweet and loving personality. Adopt vintage Tabby Cat puppet to your toy collection!

  • Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. Well loved! The plush has yellowed/soiled and there are matted/bald areas. The bow is very worn. Missing IDs. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.

    Steiff Kitty Puppet

    Marcus always offers 1st class soft puppets from Steiff, Kersa, other European companies in addition to wonderful antique carved wooden German puppets. His website is fantastic because it is easy to navigate, has THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHS and detailed descriptions.

    I know he spends hours and hours on photographing the puppets which he lists for sale. He describes in detail and points out with a red line arrow, any faults.

    I have bought many puppets from Once Upon A Puppet and have not once been disappointed with any product. I find his prices are good and fair🤗
