Steiff Gray Persian Cat, Diva, with incised script lentil nickel button which dates the cat from 1969 to the late 1970's. This Persian cat was called Diva and came in two colors, gray and white. Steiff produced these cats between 1968 and 1978. Diva has a nickel script lentil button with remnants of her yellow tag present in her ear.
Diva is in a seated position. Her head swivels and she has large yellow glass eyes, a light pink coral nose and a darker pink coral mouth. Whiskers are present as are coral pink claws on all her feet. She is missing her Steiff chest tag and original ribbon. She is in very good condition with long fur made of Dralon and cotton. She is firmly stuffed. The stuffing where her tail joins her body is somewhat loose.
She is life-size as shown in the last picture. She would make a great companion to her sister, Steiff's White Persian Diva.
