Description
Steiff Rare Peter Rabbit, German, 1906, button, 1904/5, black boot button eyes with red felt backing, pink nose stitching, unjointed, brown finely airbrushed velvet body with white under and inner ears, wearing blue felt jacket, yellow embroidered edge, four textured brass buttons to front, two pockets, Chinese-style red pointed toe slipper with leather sole, yellow embroidered edge (one is missing), fabric worn around button, velvet pile missing from diaphragm, jacket holed at left sleeve, three small holes to rear of jacket and under right arm, slightly dirty overall, otherwise Good, 9"/23cm. N.B. A book about the adventures of "Peter Rabbit" was first published in 1902. As a result Beatrix Potter achieved worldwide acclaim - not only illustrating her own book she produced a Peter Rabbit doll - and registered it at a Patent Office in London. Steiff eventually manufactured the accurate representation, right down to his clothing, these were sold initially only in the UK. This Peter Rabbit was bequeathed to the vendor by her Aunt Violet Johnson. Violet was born in Grimsby in 1910. She worked as a children's nanny for noteable families, initially in London and later Jersey. It is believed that Peter was given to her as a keepsake by one of the families.
