Vintage 1956 Large (24" from nose to butt) Steiff Mohair Tiger Model 2360.1 In excellent condition!
Steiff stuffed animals are the Cadillac of the industry. This Tiger is a fine example of the that craftsmanship, with mohair fur, glass eyes and air-brushed stripes. The overall condition is great, however there are breaks in the stuffing in the middle of her left paw and at the base of her tail. There is also a triangular spot, about 1 1/4" at its widest end where the fur is missing where her shoulders meet (see picture 4). Additionally the thread line that separates a toe on her left right foot has come loose and the very end of her tail has worn through. Despite these few minor defects this tiger is very clean, from a smoke-free environment and would make an outstanding addition to any collection
