VINTAGE 1930’S GERMAN STEIFF TERRIER DOG TOY

20140326_445This is a wonderful vintage 1930’s German Steiff large 14″ Terrier dog.  Margarete Steiff (July 24, 1847 – May 9, 1909), was a seamstress who in 1880 founded Margarete Steiff GmbH, making toy stuffed animals.  Born in Giengen, Germany she used a wheelchair, due to polio she contracted as a baby. She started making stuffed animals as a hobby. These toys began as elephants, which were originally a design Steiff found in a magazine and originally sold as pincushions to her friends. However, children began playing with them, and in the years following she went on to design many other successful animal-themed toys for children. She designed and made most of the prototypes herself.
