Description

Gorgeous and rarely seen this is Steiff's Young Lion. Not to be
confused with Steiff's more commonly found reclining Leopard
from the same time period (1954-1959). This handsome fellow's
mohair coat is a luscious combination of soft golden tan and
creamy off white, with beautiful airbrushed paws (see photo #3)
and very subtle spotting throughout. Add a big hand embroidered
pink nose outlined with black stitching, a black embroidered mouth
with red airbrushing,and big pale green eyes and the adjective "striking"
comes to mind. Fortunately this early vintage Young Lion has managed
to retain his old raised thin scripted Steiff button which is difficult to
see amid all the longer curly and fluffy ear mohair. If you would like a
close up picture of the button just let me know. I have added a metallic
bronze colored real leather collar and gold bell which are not original
to him but look so nice on him they will be included as well. My most
favorite feature though has to be his sweet and charming expression....
simply priceless!
Measurements are 15" long (front paw to tail tip which is close to his body)
12" wide (right front paw to right back paw) and 7 1/2" tall. There are three
long clear whiskers on each side of his mouth.His head still sits erect atop
his torso and even the tail's stuffing is solid (without kinks) and the tip has
still retained it's mohair (frequently not the case). He does display a very
slight age related patina to his coat which I think just adds to his charm and
character. He will be a much beloved addition to any Steiff or lion lover's
collection.

I am happy to answer any additional questions. International shoppers are
always welcome just please check with me PRIOR to purchase for the actual
shipping cost for your country as the listed one is merely an estimate. I do
offer combined 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
add more unique and hard to find 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.
