Buck Naked & Original as found, is our really very sweet 1930s Steiff Ziege Goat. This dear boy has a good spirit to him and friendly face, wonderful green glass eyes, original but very worn blue silk ribbon and his bell still hangs by a thread on his neck, he measures 7 ¼” to top of head not including ears and 8” long, nose to butt with an inch longer tail He’s in great shape for his years with nice form despite total lack of fur, you can only imagine how pretty he was in his youth. He has airbrushed details to his face, is unjointed but stands firmly on his own. The Steiff quality is very visible in his construction. Ziggy’s a very unusual boy his body coloring pattern of both brown and cream mohair was used for a short period of time around 1934 to 1943. Steiff had various goats in their catalog thru the years. See below the photo copied from the book pages of Pistorius’ Sensational Steiff Teddy Bears, Animals & Dolls showing the slight difference. Also shown in the Sortiment pg 203. Our Ziggy Goat is a keeper for sure and one of our favorites. He comes with his funny pin attached to a fab old horsehair? bristle brush.
