This is a real special one. Only 1500 of this Leo Lion will be made worldwide.
He’s quite unlike any stuffed lion I’ve ever seen. He carries an antiqued, nostalgic look to him, and after reading Steiff’s information, this is definitely what they were going for. Made out of felt, he hearkens back to the early days of the Steiff company’s history, and the glistening, airbrushed mohair mane extends down to his belly. The detailing of embroidery for his features is exquisite.
For Steiff collectors who love their lions, this is their raison d’etre.
