I have a vintage stuffed animal. It is a wolf I believe

Customer Question
Hello.. I have a...

Hello.. I have a vintage stuffed animal. It is a wolf I believe about 16" tall. He seems to be made of felt and moe hair and has large amber glass eyes and a tail with wire in it and has a tuxedo made on his body.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I have had a lot of people look at him and have been told they believed he is German made and some thought he might be steam boat willy.
