Vintage Steiff Paddy Walrus Mohair Plush Sea Lion with Glass Eyes No ID 4314


Brand Etsy

This is a vintage Steiff stuffed animal called Paddy Walrus. Paddy was only made between 1959 and 1964, so he is a hard to find fellow. This example is missing his ID, but I think that his very good condition makes up for that. He has glass eyes, original tusks, and all of his hair appears to be intact, even the longer hair on his snout is plentiful and his whiskers appear to be all present, although there may be a few less on the left side (Im sure that this is original). He is in an attractive two toned caramel brown colour. He has an interesting stance with one paw further forward than the other so that he is posed on a slight slant - adds character. He measures 16 cm in height (about 6 1/4) at his snout. Paddy was made in 3 sizes - 10 cm, 14 cm and 22 cm - so this would be the middle sized Paddy, as sizes are not always exact. This would be a great addition to a Steiff animal collection...
