This is a pale yellow mohair duck with orange felt features, made by Steiff in the 1960s. It has a small Steiff tag pinned to the front.
Steiff was founded in 1880 by Margarete Steiff, who designed the prototypes herself. However, it did not initially make teddy bears, something it began in 1902, and is now world famous for. The company remains popular to this day and its soft toys are known for their high quality.
