This life-sized, display Steiff lion is approximately 5" long and 3" tall and is standing on all fours. He is unjointed and solidly stuffed. His mane and the tip of his tail are made from fabulous long, brown tipped mohair while the rest of his body is made from woven fur. His fact is detailed with an open mouth, prominent teeth, an inset nose, clear monofilament whiskers, pupil eyes, and a touch of airbrushing. He retains his brass button-in-ear and eartag as his Steiff IDs. He was purchased directly from the Steiff factory in Germany in the 1978-79 timeframe. Condition: As noted. One half of one whisker broken off and missing. In very good condition overall. Provenance: From a fine Ohio collection.
