Here comes midi size vintage Steiff monkey (not biologically, we are aware of that), named Jocko, a chimpanzee, measuring 47 cm / 18 ½ inches from toe to the middle of the head, and 35 cm / 13 ¾ inches sitting. Steiff Jocko here was produced 1954 to 1964.Our cute jointed brown mohair monkey has his Steiff identification marks left, the Steiff old silver script button, the remains of the yellow label under the button, only the chest tag is missing, but you can still see the thread where it once hung (no photo).
Old Steiff monkey Jocko has a mute squeaker in his belly, and glass eyes. His disk joints are fine, the brown mohair 100% present, but a slightly bit faded to a more greenish-greyish brown where the light has had impact (the photo of the part on which Jocko sits shows the true colour still). Felt parts are all fine, except for one tiny spot on the inner left hand (see photo)!
Steiff monkeys of the Jocko type were made in various sizes and versions since 1909 till 1981 – they are incredibly popular – no surprise there, they look so very friendly and smiling! In the size of our Steiff Jocko here, they were made from 1949 to 1981 in four different versions, ours belonging to the second edition after WWII. We can say that our Jocko must have been made from 1954 (earlier edition would have a US Zone flag on the left arm) and until 1964 (later editions would have plastic eyes and a different button).
Please, be aware this listing is for the midi sized vintage Steiff Jocko ONLY – all other items you see in the photographs will NOT come with the chimpanzee; this listing is for the old Steiff monkey as shown ONLY! (The smaller one in the last photo will be listed soon!)
