Nose up on this rare and wonderful Steiff collectible from the 1960's!

Here we have the seldom seen Reinhold the Rhinoceros. He is 22 cm and made from grey mohair. Reinhold is sitting and head and arm jointed. His horn is made from felt. His paw pads are made from a brown leather like material. His head is detailed with black and white google eyes, a mop of long black hair, felt lined ears, and an airbrushed mouth.

Reinhold the character was the brain child of Bernhard Victor Christoph Carl von Bülow, or "Loriot," a beloved German writer, illustrator, comedian, and performer. An all around artist, he is best known for his cartoons as well as his TV performances, which have a "Monty Python" goofiness to them. Lorilot created Reinhold das Nashorn, (Reinhold the Rhino) a popular book and character in 1954. Steiff created a mohair Reinhold for one year only in 1964. Reinhold remains one of the most sought after Steiff collectibles from that period.
