      It's entirely possible that this camel came from FAO Schwartz - the department store has been selling Steiff creations for more than 100 years.

      Whether or not it was a window display will also remain unknown. Because the yellow Steiff tag is missing, there is no registration number. The smaller version of your camel was a pull toy:

      Your camel looks fairly recent so it may be a replica of an earlier camel. You can always ask Steiff. I don't know where you live, so here is the UK site:

      Big boy!
      It seems it may have been originally on wheels :
