Here is a beautiful vintage white mohair monkey, made before 1945 and 11 inches / 28 cm tall. Old monkey is made of high-quality off-white mohair, firmly stuffed with wood shavings and a mute squeaker in his belly. He has soulful looking back painted glass eyes and a felt face, ears, hands, and feet.
The old monkey’s maker can not be determined, but it is evident from the quality of the design and material that it must have been one of the great houses, we would attribute the monkey toy to the Brothers Bing, and date it into the 1920’s or very early 1930’s – thinking about that the great toy makers of that time all copied each other and all copied Steiff…
As you can see in the photographs, the vintage monkey is in good condition. There are traces of age however: the metal skeleton shows on both hands and feet, and there are some small spots where the felt is so thin as to show tiny holes, like on the nose and left hand and left foot.
It is doubtful that the silk bow is original, but it is very old indeed and befits the old monkey perfectly!
