Steiff Spotty Replica 1928

Description

The original Steiff Spotty, the dog with the very distinctive ring around his eye, was first introduced in 1928 and enjoyed great success in both Europe and North America. In 1922, while a Steiff Fox terrier, which was the first Steiff dog with that characteristic eyering was still in the Steiff assortment, the "Our Gang" or "Little Rascals" series of theatrical short films debuted to world-wide popularity. Interestingly, the dog in the film series was a bull terrier with a pronounced ring around its eye - just like the early Steiff Fox terrier. The film dog wasn't born with the unique mark - it was added by Hollywood makeup artist Max Factor. Is it possible that Steiff was the inspiration for this popular film canine? We can't know for sure, but it's still entertaining to speculate. Regardless of the answer, Steiff's Spotty retains a charm all his own. This precise replica captures the magic of the original for a new era. Spotty is wood stuffed, has glass eyes, he is hand painted and made of white mohair.
