Steiff 1955-58 Hen Rooster 1328 Mohair Plush 11 Glass Eyes Felt Tail Tags MINT
An official Steiff value guide refers to this as a HEN, not Rooster as I had assumed; it is numbered 1328. It is just awesome and overall is pretty mint'shop' condition. Did NOT come with a box originally which is why I believe this was kept enclosed in a display cabinet over the years. It has the yellow metal studded tag and paper label tag! Tags are mint as is animal, there is no dirt, or rips or any issues I can see. This was ONLY made between 1955 and 1958 and is a rare Steiff animal usually found in far less pristine condition. It is a soft plush mohair and felt trimmed/stuffed bird that stands almost 12" tall to the top of the comb, but is officially 11" tall, on wonderfully realistic feet. It came from a doll & Steiff collector estate and was kept appropriately safe from dirt and play. You can see it has the yellow tag with metal button which is SO necessary if you collect Steiff. This taller rooster/hen is less common than the 7 tall version with a different number. It looks wonderful next to a ceramic rooster in my pantry--if you love Rooster decor or primitive/farm style HERE is your bird or round out your Steiff collection with a nice rare beauty. Also a great birthday gift for someone born the year of production. Steiff always keeps their value, and are loved by anyone who is lucky enough to receive one.
