Steiff Tom Cat is certainly a favorite among Steiff's beloved felines and it is even more desirable as a playful hand puppet! This Kitty's expression with green eyes is hard to resist. Like other toys of the time, Tom Cat was skilfully handcrafted in Germany from 1968-78 using the finest mohair plush. The pictures can't capture how lustrous the dark plush is. And this puppet is even more special because it retains all IDs – the button in ear with a yellow flag #6670/17 and the chest tag! Tom Cat has nylon whiskers and the nose/mouth is stitched. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. It has been gently used but the chest tag is worn and missing a piece. The bow also shows wear. For sure this sweet little puppet will be a nice addition to your vintage toy collection!
- Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. Complete with button, ear flag #6670/17 and chest tag. The bow shows wear and the chest tag is torn and missing a piece. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
