Here comes rare Steiff Record – Rabbit named Hansi, sitting on a carriage that moves the mohair rabbit backwards and forwards automatically when pulled. It looks very funny!
Steiff Record Rabbit has still his old silver Steiff button and the yellow label (number faintly readable 9325,10), the chest tag is lost, whiskers are missing. The satin bow around his neck was added by me. Steiff Record Rabbit Hansi was produced from 1949 to 1964 ONLY and is extremely rare to find!
The edition from 1949 to 51 was made of beige brown mohair only, and since we also have the label number, we can be sure our Record-Hansi here must have been made from 1959 to 1964, the second and very last edition! The mohair bunny is in stunningly good vintage condition, no mohair lost as you can see in the photos, finest glass eyes (with some slightest superficial scratches on the right eye though), the felt parts and open mouth are excellent, but the Steiff chest tag is lost! Since the rear wheels are not perfectly round anymore the old bunny does not move as smooth as intended when pulled by the string only, one must aid the movement, since the traction is not sufficient anymore!
The carriage has some traces of age; the wooden wheels have lost some colour around the edges, and the automatic voice triggered by the movement of the bellows below the seat is sadly not working anymore.
All in all, the old bunny is in good vintage played with condition and real eye candy for the Steiff collector!
These Record Rabbits were only produced in one size: 25 cm / 10 inches from the ground to the head of the bunny and 34 cm / 13 ½ cm to the tip of its ears.

*Please, do notice, this listing is for the old Steiff Record – Rabbit Hansi ONLY as shown; all other items you may see in the photos are decorations and will NOT come with the old rabbit on wheels!
