Description

Sweet,adorable looking ,and rare due to an extremely short production
period (1955-61) and world wide popularity and appeal,this is Steiff's
early vintage kitty cat "Fiffy". Fiffy was only offered in three sizes (12cm,
17cm, and 25cm) making her production numbers even smaller than
many Steiff collectibles. This particular Fiffy is in the very desirable
largest size and considered to be a 25cm kitty. What is also interesting
about this particular Fiffy are her measurements 13" long (from right
front paw to tip of tail held close to the body) x 6" tall. Ordinarily her
length measurement would reflect the 25cm sizing equaling approx-
imately 10" but not so with this generously proportioned feline. I think
this can only be explained by the individualized and handmade nature
of the Steiff collectibles or in other words the "human element". At any
rate her unique sizing only adds to her very realistic and thoughtful
countenance. Fiffy has very excellent mohair coverage ( 100% !!!))
which is rarely the case in these earlier vintage kitties. Albeit the color
has mellowed over her nearly 60 years of life and has a very pretty patina
now which has resulted in a luscious dark cream mohair color. Her pictures
may appear a bit lighter depending on your computer screen.Best of all
this Steiff Fiffy has managed to retain ALL of her valuable IDs ( raised script
Steiff button, partially legible flag, and lightly creased chest tag). Additionally
Fiffy is still sporting her original silk Steiff ribbon which is in amazingly good
condition given it's age,and her jointed neck functions beautifully with no
looseness whatsoever (frequently not the case). All in all she is quite the rare
kitty Steiff offering and would be a grand addition to any cat,Steiff or doll
lover's collection. She would display fabulously on a bed,divan, couch ,or bay
window,etc.

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. I am glad to combine shipping
costs for multiple purchases as well . Again please ask for that cost prior
to purchase. I appreciate you visiting my listing and hopefully my shop.
I will continue to offer more HTF and unique Steiff collectibles every
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.
