Steiff Excelsior Stuffed Mohair Gaty Gator, Bison, & Open Mouth Sitting Bengal Tiger Set for Sale
Steiff Excelsior Stuffed Mohair Gaty Gator, Bison, & Open Mouth Sitting Bengal Tiger Set
We have for you this adorable set of Excelsior stuffed Mohair animals that were manufactured by Steiff of Giengen, Germany.
This set of Steiffs do not have their buttons or tags, but their stitching and fur are in very good condition. This set includes Gaty Gator, a Bison/Buffalo/Bully, and a rare, sitting, open-mouthed Bengal tiger. The only thing we noticed is that the poor bison is missing his horn on the right side. We believe these are all ca. 1950s. These come from their original owner.
These pieces are in very good all original condition with no repairs, restorations, or touch-ups. These pieces show the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that is to be expected from age and play. They are approximately 9 ½” L (bison), 6″ H (tiger), and 14″ L (gator). We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
