This fabulous, 22 inch tall , stuffed over wire armature, felt, "Puss in Boots" storybook character toy figure was probably produced by Lenci of Turin, Italy or possibly a special order by Knickerbocker, circa 1950s. We have only ever seen one other and neither of them still had their label. "Puss" is made of very fine quality, black felt over strong wire armature and wears a swashbuckling, big brown felt hat that covers his black felt hair with huge red felt "feather" plume. He has a detailed swivel head with molded cheeks, applied big felt eyes, mouth, nose and ears with inserted whiskers.
He also wears a very large red felt cape with stand-up collar and ties across his chest as well as a tan lined, apple green felt, fitted vest, white felt shirt with collar and cravat, brown gloves and belt and those incredible tan, heeled big boots with cuffs and buckle detail. Did we mention that he also has a spectacular, long black felt tail? See photo reference on pages 173-175, "LENCI"-Lazenby. He is in wonderful condition with no fading or tears, no stains or damages and no odors as he is from a smoke free home (few very tiny holes that are hard to find).We are also listing a pair of tagged: Lenci giraffes this week as shown in last photos.
