Velvet Steiff Mickey Mouse Doll.

Lot 0881
Steiff and the Walt Disney Company have been collaborators since the early 1930’s, and this doll the first design that kicked off this nearly century old partnership. Mickey is made from black and white velvet. His eyes are glued on, and he has a few of black whiskers remaining. He wears yellow gloves and velvet pants detailed with white buttons; his trousers have appeared in a variety of colors including red and green over time. This example has orange shoes with fabric soles. Steiff made Mickey Mouse from 1931- 1936 in 11, 16, 23, 30, 36, and 48 cm. His IDs and his original tail have been lost to time. Condition: As noted, with a tear in the ear where his ID would have originally been located and general darkening and light losses to velvet. In good condition overall. Provenance: From the collection of long-time Steiff archivist Dick Franz.
