Steiff Owl

This owl is not your ordinary owl, it’s a Steiff. It was waiting for me at a tag sale and lucky for me it was day two of the sale so everything was 50% off. Once I had him in my hands and saw his $12.00 price tag he was coming home with me.

Steiff

Steiff had this mohair stuffed animal in production from 1954 to 1977. Mine is missing his Wittie name tag and Steiff button from his left-wing. What it does have is wonderful details including a rotating head—as all owls should have—an airbrush painted body and glass eyes. I think it is extremely cute and a tiny bit creepy. Case in point: it has glow-in-the-dark eyes.
