Jack Rabbit c1927

Jack Rabbit c1927
Fabulous rare Steiff "Jack Rabbit" with FF button in ear and red stock tag number 28 dating 1927-1931. Jack Rabbit is in lovely original condition (apart from the green ribbon which is a later replacement and the sole of the right shoe apparently being replaced - we would not have known this had it not stated it in the catalogue as it is a superb job). He has swivel head and jointed arms, wire-framed ears and measures 11" tall not including the ears.

This rabbit was purchased from the Steiff auction at Christies, London in 2010 (see photos) and has been in a private collection since that time.

Jack Rabbit is based on the character of a famous children`s book written by Uncle Dave Cory and published by Grosset & Dunlop Books. Steiff sold 2780 examples of this toy between 1927 and 1931
