We think this was made around the mid 1950's. It belonged to my sister in law and has been packed away since 1981. There are no tags on it. When you roll the material back you can see the head is a round ball of pressed material that looks like dried hay. There is a finger opening (very small) which looks like a cylinder of thin cardboard. The material is not terribly soft. The nose and mouth are sewing thread. I have no idea what the eyes are made of or how they are fastened on.

Any input to help us research this would be appreciated.

    No button in his ear and his ears are clean :) I think from looking at the link above it is the one from 1950's because there is a loop on the chest where a tag could have hung.

    Thank you. We have five parrots and just adopted a disabled sun conure. The bird in the picture was not a month old yet and enjoyed sleeping snuggled to my neck.

    Oh my gosh, I had this puppet when I was a little girl in the '50s! I haven't seen it for so many years, wish I still had it! Happy memories! I'm sure mine was a Steiff.
