BUTCH THE COVER DOG
In the 1940’s The Saturday Evening Post introduced a black and white cocker spaniel named Butch, The Cover Dog. A character that would capture the hearts of the nation created by artist Albert Staehle, Butch appeared on the magazine’s cover more than two dozen times. So it was only natural that Steiff would produce a toy version of the character. First manufactured in 1958 only, Butch made his return in 2014.
Using archival patterns, 17cm Butch is made from the finest mohair plush and like the original features brown “googly” eyes and a hand painted coat. A remarkable rendition of the illustrations created by Albert Staehle. This new edition will bring a smile to dog lovers and classic Steiff collectors alike.
