Richard Steiff designed a new bear in 1928 and called him 'Buschy'. He was inspired by the roaring Twenties in America - a beautiful bear and had striking blue eyes. Later Steiff changed the name of the bear to 'PETSY'. Everyone loved the name and here Steiff have made a Replica 'PETSY' 1928 with a black label in the ear. Limited edition of just 928 pieces.
He is fully jointed and made from brown tipped mohair and stuffed with wood shavings. His face has been carefully shaved to show white and has a hand gold stitched mouth and nose - and paw pads made from felt.
All the Steiff Limited Edition Bears can be recognised by the white label with the famous gold plated Steiff button in the left ear.
The Limited Edition Steiff bears are made from the traditional mohair and are fully jointed. They are also surface washable, with some only at 30 degrees. Steiff have been manufacturing bears and other collectable characters in their German factories for over 125 years.
As with all those characters made in the early days, it is still the manual skills and attention to detail that make each Steiff product wonderfully unique. As Margaret Steiff once said, 'Only the best is good enough for our children.' This value still holds true within all of Steiff's products today, and they are without doubt the most collectable bears available today. With Steiff continuing to produce exquisite limited editions along with a brilliant array of quality classic and cosy bears, their range will never stop growing. Each Steiff bear is signified by a tag in its left ear. View our range today and find something special for your friends, family or a loved one.
