Lot 0814
Made For The Saturday Evening Post. This is Steiff's version of Saturday Evening Post's "Butch the Cover Dog" mascot. Butch is standing, 17 cm tall, and head-jointed. He is hard-stuffed with excelsior. His body and face are made from short white mohair, which has been airbrushed with black highlights on his back and head. His ears, tail, and feet are made from very long black shaggy mohair. It almost appears that Butch is wearing fuzzy slippers, based on his foot construction, and has long white mohair "feathers" on the back seams of each of his front and back legs. His face is detailed with very large round black, brown, and white spherical eyes, a black hand embroidered nose, and a touch of pink highlighting around his lips. He retains his original red collar. Butch was made in 1958 only. Condition: As noted. Butch has his raised script Steiff button and his special Butch chest tag, produced for this edition only. In original, very good to excellent condition. Size 7-1/2'' L.
