Here we have Steiff's 14 cm five ways jointed tiger cub. He is standing on all fours, and made from tan mohair that has been airbrushed with a base of orange with black striped details all over his head, back, and the tops of his limbs. Tiger's face is detailed with green and black slit pupil eyes, pert mohair ears, a black hand embroidered nose and mouth, and monofilament whiskers. He has a little red highlighting around his lips and eyes.
Tiger was produced in 8, 10, and 14 cm from 1952 through 1959. This particular item was manufactured in the 1952 through 1957 time frame.
