Steiff Hucky Raven Bird Hand Puppet Circa 1964 - 1969 Hard To Find
I recently purchased 3 Steiff hand puppets. They are not something I have a great deal of knowledge of so it’s been a learning curve. In this research I have found that this puppet Hucky the Raven Bird is quite rare and hard to find. Hucky was made from 1962 to 1969. I believe, his eyes are not glass but a hard plastic. When I tap them on my teeth, the best way I know to test they don’t have the sound or feel of glass. He does not have a tag but his button is attached. There are small yellow strings around the button. Unlike other 2 Steiff hand puppets I am listing, your finger goes into his bottom beak there is no finger tube.
CONDITION: As I said I’m by no means an expert on Steiff, but he looks good to me. The felt on the outside is red, inside is a burgundy color. They look clean and fine. The mohair is fluffy and has no missing or matted areas.
