STEIFF Wittie Owl Hand Puppet ~ 1950-60s Early Model!



Steiff has created some of the most adorable plush animals and Wittie Owl is no exception, especially when it appears as a hand puppet. And this toy is special not only because of its attractive appearance but also because it is an early model circa 1950-60s. Its simple but endearing felt beak is an indication of that. Similar to other toys of the time, Wittie was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush. It has amazing airbrushing details and two amusing flapping wings. Little black tufts on the top of its head complete its lovable personality. Wittie's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. The chest tag named Wittie is a little worn. It is missing other Steiff IDs. This playful little bird puppet can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!
