This highly unusual Steiff bear is a replica of one of the company’s first-ever bears. Unusually he is jointed, like the 1904 originals, with metal rods. His nose is moulded to resemble the sealing wax noses of that time. The replica is traditionally filled with wood shavings, and made of wavy and distressed, cinnamon mohair with black-lacquered, wooden button eyes and felt paw pads. The button in ear is a replica of the elephant button used by Steiff between 1904 and 1905. The cloth label is sewn in his left side seam. In mint condition complete with certificate, chest tag, presentation box and original packing box. Number 1212 of a limited edition of 7000.
