Description

This is Steiff's medium sized,5x jointed cat named "Kitty". Kitty
is considered to be a 17cm Steiff feline collectible and measures
7 3/4" long ( without tail ) x 6 1/2"tall and 11" tall with the tail in-
cluded . Kitty's tail has one kink in it even though it manages to
not be overly droopy.This particular Kitty (# 5317) was produced
from 1949-1953 only and that short period may account for some
of her scarcity. Adding to her appeal is the presence of the Steiff
button and flag ( now illegible), and her ability to strike many cute
poses due to her labor intensive five functioning joints ( with some
play in them ). This does not hamper her ability to be posed at all
though.There is a age related patina to her mohair coat which has
evolved her lighter mohair into a darker cream color and her air-
brushed black striping is slightly less bolder than when she was
created some 67 years ago. Frankly in my humble opinion I think
these changes merely add to her antique look and charming
personality. I should mention that Kitty's big beautiful green glass
eyes are hand painted and in a perfect condition (unscratched). I
must say though my favorite feature is Kitty's very sweet expression
.... absolutely priceless !

I am happy to answer any additional questions. This listing is for the larger
Tabby Kitty only. The little tabby is from the 1960s and is available for sale
as well. If you are interested just message me and I can do a listing for her.
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 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.
