A Worn little Early Steiff left “as found” just begging for a hug. He is old & decrepit & could use some Love! His shoe button eyes show his sad despair, darning to his face shows that someone cared. His original floss nose is covered with newer thread. His mouth looks original to me. He has replaced pads on all fours with old leather covering his feet and some original claws. Measures about 9 1/2” tall.

      Likely re-stuffed or needing a bit here and there to do away with age old wrinkles. Joints still move fairly well with no arthritis setting in soon. He has darkened over time with age old patina, not at all blondish as my photos show. He has a few tiny holes where his fabric seems weak and some naïve repairs to his limp little body which likely was apricot when he was born. His squaeker takes up most of his belly, he has a cute face and could use some TLC, due to his age it is doubtful a bubble bath would help.
