WONDERFUL, EARLY STEIFF VELVET CAT WITH BUTTON

What 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!

He is in amazingly strong condition, with no holes that I can see.  At some point in his long life his ears and his tail have been restitched back on.   He has the funniest little face, and still retains his original bootbutton eyes.   He just can`t wait to come to his new home and get acquainted with new toy friends.  Please let me know if you want further details and can offer him that new home he so wants ..... A rare and Fabulous old Kitty... Layaway is available...

THE GORGEOUS STEIFF KITTY WITH BUTTON  is SOLD
