STEIFF VELVET CAT WITH BUTTON
a gorgeous old Steiff Cat this is. The first I
have ever had to offer my customers and one of my
favourite toys I have for sale at the moment. He
has his original Steiff blank button in his left ear,
and dates from around 1905... so is over one
hundred and ten years old! Amazing he has survived
at all..... The velvet has darkened over the
years, Kitty was originally a tabby and some of his
markings are still visible. He holds
his original woollen play ball between his front paws
and measures about 6 inches with his tail
extended. He is wonderful and would make an great
addition to a cat collection, with bears or held by a
doll - he is just fabulous!
