Here we have a little Steiff "Nipper" dog. This fox terrier is sitting and unjointed. His body is made from white dralon which is punctuated with a few brown and black spots. His ears are brown mohair. His face is detailed with large black and brown pupil eyes and a sweet black hand embroidered nose and mouth. He left the factory in Giengen, Germany, wearing a little red leather collar. His head is tilted off slightly to the side, as if he is listening to something... like his master's voice!
Nipper was produced by Steiff in 12, 17, 25 centimeters from 1968 through 1974. He was also made in a rare 45-cm display size studio piece in 1968 only.
