Vintage Steiff Foxy Fox Terrier
Hummingbear Vintage features unique (often whimsical) vintage and antique decorative items from various parts of the world.
This is a wonderful, large, vintage Steiff "Foxy" Fox Terrier from the 1950s. He measures approximately 8.25" tall x 9.5" long (not including the tail). This would have made him the 22cm version (after a couple of mm shrinking). His article number would have been either 1322,0 (made between 1950 and 1958) or 1322,00 (made only in 1959).
The dog is in very good condition. He has lost his ear button and yellow tag but retains his original signature red collar and paper chest tag with the name "Foxy" (both in excellent shape). On the back of the name tag is some German text that roughly translates as "mothproofed with Eulan by Bayer." The terrier also has both of his brown and black glass eyes and 3 black stitches on each paw. His embroidered nose and mouth are completely intact and there is the typical red detailing just below the stitching on the mouth and black detailing around the eyes. The mohair coat is still thick and fuzzy with just a small amount of thinning around the tail tip, front feet and muzzle area. I don't see any stains, tears or signs of repair. (See photos for best understanding of condition.)
All in all, this is a very sweet and quite rare fellow and he was obviously well taken care of over the years. He would make a great addition to any dog, Steiff, or vintage toy collection, or the perfect gift for a Fox Terrier owner. According to the official Steiff Sortiment price guide, this dog is worth anywhere from $150 to $250. I am pricing him lower only in light of his missing ear button/tag which he more than makes up for with his extreme cuteness!
