Camel Karim (25 cm)SH034183
Camels were among the earliest Steiff animals - in fact, the first trademark for Steiff felt animals even features a camel.
Which means that Karim camel is part of a rich tradition at Steiff.
The first in his line appeared in 1898 - a less elaborate version on wheels.
His great-grandson Karim, who is 25 cm tall and made of finest brown wool felt, prefers to stand on his own four hooves.
He also loves his lavishly decorated saddlecloth - patterned with gold trimming and gold-coloured tassels.
His head is adorned with a red leather halter and a gold-coloured tassel on either side.
His gold-plated "Button in Ear" and the rich, gently curling fur single him out as a descendent of a very special family.
Karim camel comes in a limited edition of 1,500.
