Vintage Mohair Lion w Mane Plush Stuffed Animal
Rare vintage large lion stuffed toy dating to the 1920's/30's. Known as a plush toy this large lion is made in a relaxed realistic pose with his head tilting inquisitively to the side. His eyes are glass , his body is most likely stuffed with kapok but it does crackle around his head like wood wool and his head is made from straw. He does not have pads on his paws and his nose is hand stitched. His fur is mohair I believe which leaves an ash residue when burned (a small tuft was brushed from his tail to test). The previous owner has suggested that they were made by H K Farnell but without a tag it is difficult to determine. This lion came with his lioness mate and possibly had a cub originally to form the wild animal family.
This would make a great birthday gift, vintage stuffed toy collection or a fabulous addition to a zoo animal themed nursery.
Lion measures by 22" long by 9.25" tall by 8" wide and weighs 1lb 9oz.
The lion is in nice condition considering age and use. There is definitely some fur loss in areas such as his nose, back & paws. Evidence of a repair on one area of his leg and his right ear is a little loose (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
