Brenz", the felt business that would become Margarete Steiff GmbH a few years later, featured a camel as the company's first logo. From the early 1900's on, camels have been an important animal in the Steiff menagerie. This Camel on a pincushion, replica 1904, which is 8 cm in size, is made from the highest quality cotton velvet and is lovingly decorated by hand. The head, neck and hump are detailed with braided long shiny mohair. The camel's tiny, lifelike face is brought to life with glass pearl eyes and intricate paintwork. His mouth is embroidered by hand. He rests peacefully on a cord-edged velvet pincushion. The camel comes in a nice box with certificate of authenticity. Other pieces issued in this series are Little elephant pincushion (2002), Frog pincushion (2003) and Cat on a pincushion (2006).
