Steiff Teddy Bear Replica 1908 (Light Cinnamon)

Description

A decade ago, a very special Teddy bear was offered for sale at London's most prestigious auction house.

Since it was expected to be one of the most desirable items in the sale, the Teddy bear was featured on the cover of the widely distributed auction catalogue.

In Giengen, a Steiff designer was captivated by the image of the bear. "Wouldn't this make a wonderful replica?" he wondered. As the years passed, the designer often recalled the beauty of that special Teddy bear. After 10 years of waiting, the time has finally come to present this unique bear to our collectors.

It was originally designed in 1908 and is now available as an exact replica of the original. The most unique aspect of this 5-way jointed Teddy bear, who is stuffed with wood shavings, is the elaborate plush developed by Steiff Schulte. Salmon-coloured mohair with gently faded tips and a cinnamon-coloured cotton back lend this unique Teddy bear a wonderful sense of colour. His nose, muzzle and claws have all been stitched by hand. He proudly wears an "underscored button" in ear that reflects the period of his original manufacture.

Lovers of classic, traditional bears will definitely want to add this unique example of Steiff artistry to their collections.
