Teddy bear is one of Steiff's most beloved animals and as a hand puppet he is a must-have! And this puppet is even more special because it holds an old style chest tag, dating this puppet between 1952-53. His sweet baby-like expression with glass eyes is simply adorable. Like other toys of the time, this Teddy puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush and it is not a surprise that he presents beautifully even after so many years. He has a hand-stitched nose, an open felt mouth and two big paws that are ready for a hug. His head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Teddy seems gently used with nice coloring and is only missing the yellow flag under the button. No doubt this very special hand puppet will bring joy and be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
