    Here we have Steiff's fantastically adorable and unusual fox nightcap animal.

    He is 15 cm and head jointed. His head and arms are made from light orange dralon. His muzzle and the insides of his ears are white mohair, while the outsides of his ears are black velvet. His body, which is designed to be like a hollow tent, is made from green felt which is decorated a brown felt collar and "pockets" and brown leather buttons. His face is detailed with brown and black pupil eyes, a black hand embroidered nose and mouth, clear mono-filament whiskers, and a touch of airbrushing.

    This is one of Steiff's beloved nightcap animals. Others in this series included cats, bears, dogs, and a series of well attired rabbits. These items were designed to hide a sweet, prize, or coin on the pillow of a child. But there's no reason the same logic couldn't work for an adult as well.

    Nightcap fox was produced in 15 cm between 1969 and 1974.
