"Isn't this cute! They have been safely all snuggled together and stored away for a long time!"
This is a lovely special collection of "Peters Animals". They are all Steiff, they don't have their buttons, have been played with a loved, then safely stored away in an old box for a long time labelled "Peters Animals". I didn't want to separate them, it didn't feel right.
They are all free from unpleasant odours, but if desired they would be a very satisfying group to clean. The details of the group are listed below, and each animal can be seen in the photographs .. and after the shoot the boss Monkey of the group rounded them back up, and they snuggled back into their box.
1) Steiff Art Silk Teddy Bear. 12inches. Fully jointed, recovered pads. He dates to just after the 2nd World War (Art Silk Steiff were only made for a very short time period so are more rare).
- He doesn't have eyes fitted, but he does come along with a loose pair of beautiful antique painted back glass eyes, so maybe he'll see again one day?
2) Steiff Mohair Bear Cub. 5.5 inches long. Jointed head, all original including glass eyes and collar. Dates to the early 1940's.
3) Steiff Snobby Poodle Dog. 5 inches long. Jointed limbs. All original including glass eyes. 1950's.
4) Steiff Monkey.11inches. 5 Way jointed. Lovely all original condition. Not showing much wear. Lovely dense warm dark brown mohair, retains his facial detailing and glass eyes. 1950s-60.
5) Steiff Cat. 6 inches long excluding tail. All original condition, art silk plush. c1950-60s'.
I'm hoping the right person is out there for this lovely group of treasured toys to find their new happy home (i'd love an update once they're settled). They will travel in their box, which will be safely wrapped for shipping. Any questions please message.
