Description

Produced for 1 year only. Reinhold the Rhinoceros is 22 cm and made from grey mohair. Reinhold is sitting and head and arm jointed. His horn is made from felt. His paw pads are made from a brown leather like material. His head is detailed with black and white google eyes, a mop of long black hair, felt lined ears, and an airbrushed mouth. Reinhold was the brainchild of "Loriot," a beloved German writer, illustrator, comedian, and performer. An all around artist, he is best known for his cartoons as well as his TV performances. Loriot created Reinhold das Nashorn, (Reinhold the Rhino) a popular book and character in 1954. Steiff created Reinhold in 1964 in this size only. Reinhold remains one of the most sought after Steiff collectibles from that period. Condition: As noted. Reinhold retains his raised script style Steiff button and is in very good to excellent condition overall. Size 8'' T.
