Small stain on right upper front collar . . .  for it's age amazing condition!

#8 ~ Brown Dotty Dress

Please note the back side with the buttons is how I have always displayed this as the front is more faded and has a tear at upper chest.  But it is just the sweetest early print with contrasting edging at bottom and on sleeves. Glass buttons with red edging.  
Definitely not perfect condition . .  but just so sweet and displays well (back side out ;-)

A very sweet 15" teddy . . .  created by the Petz company of Germany.

Stick pin eyes which most likely are not original . . . I think he may have had colored eyes.
He is wearing a hard to find Steiff sweater and is very proud.

Such a sweet  little fellow with a face to melt your heart!
