This is the smallest Steiff Dromedary or Camel that was produced between 1953 and 1969. The camel measures 14 cm or 5 1/2" in height. He retains his original chest tag but no longer has his ear button or production tag. He is in excellent condition with black glass eyes and good color in the airbrushed details.
I adore his expression. The airbrushed mouth is not quite even which makes him look like he is chewing on something. Sometimes these tiny imperfections give Steiff creatures a whole new personality. This little camel comes from a non smoking environment and was well taken care of. He is now ready for a new home.
