Steiff Tabby Cat is certainly one of Steiff's most beloved characters and it is even more charming as a hand puppet! And this Kitty has a lovely expression that will melt your heart. Like other toys of the 60-70s, it was skillfully handcrafted in Germany using the finest mohair plush. It has an endearing look with nylon whiskers and hand-stitched nose/mouth. The striped airbrushing work performed on this puppet is also remarkable. Kitty's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet has been used but is still in nice condition despite many decades of life. No doubt this old little puppet will be a great addition to your toy collection!
