Beautiful Early German squirrel likely made by Strunz, similar in design to Steiff’s jointed squirrel. He has shoe button or black glass eyes and is 5-way jointed at arms, legs and head. He’s firmly filled with excelsior stuffing, measuring 8 ½” sitting and about 10” to ear tips standng on his very long feet. His bushy tail is not jointed. It does not move but is sewn against his back, filled with a little excelsior as well.
Made around 1900’s of pale reddish tan mohair with cream mohair down his front and cinnamon color tail. He has nice coloring and a little bit of mohair missing, in really nice condition for his age with his original floss on nose, mouth and claws.
Our chunky little forager has a great expressive face. These early squirrels are hard to come across in any condition.
