Online Auction Description

This Gucki puppet by Steiff has managed to survive in remarkably good shape in spite of the energetic affection of two boys. His Santa Claus face sports a cauliflower nose and twinkly eyes plus a full beard of handsome white whiskers.

His bald head is covered by a hat in the shape of a red felt cone that avoids the dunce cap look by being stitched to fall over to one side for a sort of friendly gnome look. His head is made of a hard rubber, hollow inside to accommodate a hand.

He is about 10” tall, not counting his hat, and wide enough for a hand to fit easily inside.

He is old and forgetful now and has mislaid the chest tag he originally came with.

His “vital signs” are listed on a tiny yellow cloth label attached with a metal fastener:

[label side 1] Steiff Original


Made in Germany

[label side 2] outer covering 95% wool 5 % rayon

Steiff produced a number of hand puppets through the 1960s but no longer carries them. You slide your hand up inside the robe, put your middle finger into the hard head piece. Your thumb goes into one arm; your pinky goes into the other. Now start wiggling your fingers. A cheerful patter fits in well here.
