Steiff Tom Cat is certainly a favorite among Steiff's beloved felines and it is even more desirable as a hand puppet! This Kitty's expression with green glass eyes is hard to resist. Like other toys of the time, Tom Cat was skilfully handcrafted in Germany circa 1950-60s using the finest mohair plush. The pictures can't capture how lustrous its plush is. Tom Cat has nylon whiskers and the nose/mouth is hand-stitched. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. It has been gently used and lost all IDs with time. But its adorable personality is intact! For sure this sweet little puppet will be a very nice addition to your vintage toy collection!
