Steiff Tom Cat is certainly a favorite among Steiff's beloved felines and he is even more desirable when he appears as a hand puppet! This Kitty's expression with green glass eyes is adorable. 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 the plush color so well. He has nylon whiskers and the nose/mouth is hand-stitched. His head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Little Tom Cat has been loved and shows mohair wear specially in the nose/head area. He has lost all IDs and is missing the bow around his neck. But his adorable personality is intact! For sure this sweet little puppet will be a nice addition to your vintage toy collection!
