BRIGHT ORANGE MOHAIR STEIFF RABBIT WITH BUTTON ON WOODEN ECCENTRIC WHEELS.

Rabbit is begging, head jointed and made from white and gloriously vibrant orange mohair. This color is not specifically mentioned in the standard Steiff Sortiment reference books for this item. The ears are lined in wire and are posable. Rabbit’s face is detailed with large black and brown glass pupil eyes and a red hand-embroidered nose and black mouth and clear monofilament whiskers. Bell appears original but ribbon is probable replacement. The white mohair lining of the rabbit’s ears are touched with a bit of pink airbrushed highlights. He rides upon four olive green wooden eccentric wheels, giving the appearance of the rabbit hopping as the cart is pulled along. Rabbit retains his long trailing “F” button and traces of his ear tag as his Steiff IDs. SIZE: 9″ t (23cm). PROVENANCE: Chuck & Cathy Steffes Collection. CONDITION: Light and general mohair loss and fading. Wooden wheels show paint losses, otherwise very good. 1-13876 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 3042
