This is a Steiff black cat with an arched back from the 1950's - 1960's. He retains his original Steiff button with yellow id tag and his orange bow. This little guy is the next to smallest size and measures 4" to the top of his arched back and 6" to the tip of his tale. He has green glass eyes with round pupils and is in very nice condition.
I have listed two Steiff black cats that are this size from this time period. Both are beautiful but have very different appearances. This one has a slightly wider face, more like that of an actual tom cat, and stockier legs. His velveteen body is in excellent condition with no flaws to the velveteen that I can see and he is ready for a new home.
