Monk King Replica 1925
Mohair woven fur, white, jointed, excelsior stuffed, on tricycle, surface washable
Limited edition of 3430: 01176
Height: 19 cm.
Monk King is 19 cm tall and fully jointed. He has been sewn from white mohair with wool felt peach accents for his face, hands, feet and ears plus a yellow crown decorated with red embroidery for his head. His paws and face have received hand applied, colour shading to define and shape, creating the powerful ‘mask’ over his eyes. He is attached to a metal tricycle, decorated with the Steiff Teddy Bear Head Logo, and wooden wheels. A turn-key on the side operates the cogs to rotate, giving the appearance that the monkey is actually moving his legs independently.
