An early Steiff felt donkey pull toy made sometime between 1910 to 1915 in Germany. Measures 11" tall, 5 1/2" wide, and 13" in length. Made up of a grey stuffed felt covering. Black mohair runs on the back of the neck and on the end of the tail. Two shoe button eyes dot the face. A leather saddle and reins cover the body and head. These feature metal studs in them. There is also a red felt with yellow embroidery underneath the saddle. An FF underscored printed button is in the left ear. Tail is a bit stiff but floppy as it is stitched onto the body. Metal wiring runs up the legs and connects to a metal axle. Blue painted wooden wheels on both front and back have paint loss from use. The felt covering does not have damage and is in near min condition. Everything about it is in excellent condition sans the wheels. Perfect for any Steiff collection.
