Here we have Steiff's 13 cm Flossy Fish. She is lying, unjointed, and made from tan mohair that has been airbrushed with bright red, gold, and orange. She has red felt fins that have been stenciled with black stripes. Her sweet face is detailed with large brown and black pupil eyes and large peach colored felt lips.

Flossy was the initial fish design launched post war in 1960. She was made from mohair and colored either in the blues, reds, or yellows in 13, 28, and 66 cm. All Flossies were joyously hand airbrushed, perhaps to give the impression of swirling color under water. Flossy remained in the Steiff catalog through 1981.
