She researched his provenance and to her delight the teddy bear was indeed a Steiff bear from 1912! Her paw pads are made from beige felt and hand stitched in the same thread as used on his nose. This beautiful replica teddy bear has a fascinating history.......A collector in England bought a case of old dolls and teddy bears at an auction - by remote bid as she liked the description of the lot. When she unpacked the case, she discovered a fascinating black bear with no markings and immediately suspected it could be a Steiff teddy bear!
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.
