This cute largest size vintage fully jointed Steiff cat named Kitty was produced in this version with glass eyes from 1949 to 1964 only, later editions (1965 to 1970 which was the last year of production) would have plastic eyes. Our cat here still has her old Steiff silver script button in her left ear and the yellow label that is washed out entirely.
Our old Steiff Kitty cat measures 22 cm / 8 ¾ inches from head to buttocks and 20 cm / 8 inches from the middle of the head to front paw, it is the largest sized version from 3 produced sizes and quite a sensation – in all my time with old toys this is the first I have been able to lay my hands on!
Largest old Steiff Kitty cat is firmly stuffed with wood wool (excelsior), her tabby mohair plush is hand brushed and she is fully jointed – the only cat model Steiff ever produced with 5 disk joints and therefor highly popular and much sought after! Steiff Kitty cat is ideal to be best friends with your darling dolls or bears!

Old Steiff Kitty cats are exceedingly rare now and highly collectible! Our Kitty here has lost her other Steiff identification mark (the chest tag), so nothing can hinder her frolicking around! Kitty has all her mohair, and the old Steiff cat is in very good vintage condition, from her whiskers only one strand remains. Her nose and claws are embroidered! The satin bow and bell were added by me. The disk joints are all working fine, but arms and legs are a bit loose, still, the old cat can hold every position as you can see in the photos!
Sadly, the squeaker in cat’s belly does not work anymore. Both glass eyes have some superficial scratches, too faint to be captured by my camera.

*Please, be aware that this listing is for the largest Steiff Kitty cat ONLY, all other items you see in the photographs will NOT come with the large sized old cat!
We do have a lot of different Steiff cats listed in our store!

*Please notice: This largest vintage Steiff Kitty cat does not belong into the hands of children; it may not fulfill the safety standards for toys in our time! So, it is not a children’s toy, though an adult collector’s & vintage toy lover’s item for decoration & display only!
