Two little mice are twice as nice, especially when they are by Steiff and in near mint condition! These wonderful little rodents are made of wool pom-poms with adorable little pink felt feet, bright bead eyes, felt ears, and long flexible rubbery tails. These diminutive mice are just 2.25 inches long, not including their 3.25 long tails, but they are delightfully detailed, from the soft blush inside their oval ears to their swivel necks. One mouse is cream colored with red bead eyes and a pink tail, while the other is grey with black eyes and a grey tail. They each still proudly carry their silver "knopf im ohr" (button in ear), which have "Steiff" in raised script, a style of button used by the company from the early 1950s through the mid-1960s. The white mouse still has her full yellow Steiff tag with her number, "2504.44" and "Made in Germany," but her little grey-furred friend has lost the lower piece of her tag. These marvelous miniature mice are in wonderful condition for their age with no noticeable wear and their tails are still intact and flexible.
