This sleeping tabby cat is by the German company of Steiff. Of soft mohair, this kitty cat has embroidered features and a ribbon around its neck. There is a bell in its right paw. This cute kitten retains his original paper chest tag, a style used from 1950 through 1971, with the name "Floppy Kitty" and on the back of the tag announces that he is moth-proofed (mottenecht). The original silver Steiff button with raised letters and yellow tag are in the cat's right ear (the tag states this is "Steiff Original 7328). Overall, this precious pussycat is in wonderful condition for its age, with its mohair fur clean and unfaded and stitched features intact. The chest tag is a bit creased and the ribbon needs a little freshening, but it appears that this kitty was never played with. He is approximately 15 inches from nose to tip of the tail.
