Authentic Renate Müller animal toy from the 1970s. Unique in shape and workmanship. This example shows three pillows in the shape of a mouse made of jute and decorated with leather details in red and blue. The high quality toy is handmade from ecologically acceptable materials. Renate Müller developed high-quality children's toys in cooperation with doctors and therapists in the GDR. She later on worked with small series and even more valuable materials, making the toys being dealt at high prices. The robust toy animals from Müller's manufactory are now traded worldwide. The older toys are in great demand among collectors, museums and especially in the United States. Müller is influenced by the Bauhaus and  natural materials.
