Description

Very rare and equally wonderful this is a pair of fabulous antique Steiff
Hound Dogs named " Treff". Both Treffs are in the sitting position and
the largest sized one at approximately 101/2" tall is considered to be
a 28cm and the pup at 5 1/2 " tall is considered to be a 14cm collectible.
Both have neck joints that allow their heads to swivel in all directions
and these joints still function beautifully without looseness (AMAZING! !)
Personally I am always a little in awe of these early surviving examples of
Steiff's genius and creativity. When you study their engaging facial ex-
pressions and overall distinctively conceived configurations combined
with the recognition that they have been highly cherished and loved over
their long lives ......well no wonder they evoke a sigh or two on a very
regular basis as these particular antique Steiffs are indeed special. Large
Treff's very valuable long trailing FF Button and his full length and legible
red EAN Flag (#3328.2) which was used back in the day and is rarely still
available certainly qualifies him as not your everyday Steiff sighting. Add
to that he is the largest size that was made in the antique Treff Hound dogs
from 1928-1935 only. His smaller friend (14cm pup Treff ) has also managed
to retain his old FF button as well and what he lacks in stature is more than
compensated for with pure charm. Additionally their big gorgeous amber
glass eyes are unscratched and the largest Treff's stature is still very erect
while the little guy's is good with the exception that there is a little "give "
in his right front leg. Large Treff's overall condition is good to very good
considering his age while his little sidekick 's overall condition is fair due
to a bit more loss of his mohair. Fortunately his facial mohair is still very
available and for me personally this keeps the little guy still pretty darn cute.
Either one is a great find but together they are priceless. I love these guys
together but in the interest of getting them " adopted " to good homes I
would consider splitting them up.

I am happy to answer any additional questions. International shoppers are
always welcome just please message me prior to purchase for the actual
shipping cost for your country as the listed one is merely an estimate.
The purchase of insurance while optional is highly recommended for
the package but has not been included in the shipping estimate. I will
gladly combine shipping for multiple purchases and that cost is based
on the package's weight, dimensions, and destination. Last but not least
I appreciate you visiting my listing and hopefully my shop. I will continue
to offer more unique and HTF Steiff collectibles each week so please check
back often. Thank you for stopping by.

At last, I will be able to tell others of my excellent experience with this
shop owner. My Bengal Tiger was the first big expenditure I decided on as a part of my Steiff collection for my grand-daughters. He is everything I had hoped for and more. It is always a joy to receive a purchase that is exactly as it has been described but when you are able to have an added bonus in dealing with someone as dedicated as this shop owner- it's more than a "win, win" situation. Many, many thanks for making this a memorable exchange for me.
