This large replica of one of Steiff’s first-ever teddy bears is made of wavy and distressed, long pile, cinnamon mohair with black-lacquered, wooden eyes and a nose, moulded to resemble the original waxed one. Traditionally filled with wood shavings, he has felt paw pads. This bear is particularly unusual for being string-jointed (as Steiff’s very first bears were). The black ribbon now was added by his former owner. The bear and certificate are in excellent condition. The box is slightly damaged (see photos). Number 1585 of a limited edition of 6000.
