I’m curious about a Steiff ‘Peky Pekingese ‘.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

He was purchased in 1953. I’m curious as to what it originally sold for?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I know he is mohair as are most Steif stuffed animals. I’m just curious for sentimental reasons!

Thank you for your patience below is information on the 1953 Steiff ‘Peky Pekingese ‘

From what I have read the original price was 1.95 for this dog. I have found the information below also for you on the dog.

_____________________________________________________

the link below tells you about the Peky dogs and about a third down from the top shows the article I have pasted here for you below.

http://mysteifflife.blogspot.com/2009/11/taking-closer-peek-at-steiffs-peky-dogs.html

After the war, a newer Pekingese design was introduced, debuting in 1953. This updated Peky was produced in 8, 10, 14, and 22 cm though 1977. The post-war Peky is standing, made from light brown mohair, has a detailed black muzzle (mostly velvet in the smaller sizes; mohair in the larger ones), and a darling, pouty mouth. This pattern was also produced as an 18 cm hand puppet from 1963 through 1964. Because this design is so expressive, it remains a collector's favorite to this day - as each Peky truly has her own look and personality. The photo on the left shows an assortment of these "newer" Pekys, including the puppet.
