Steiff Teddy Bear Replica 1908



This is a replica of an original, believed to be unique. In 1908 Steiff offered six coloured bears to their dealers in London. Four of these – pink, yellow, green and black were never seen again until recently, when the black sample was discovered in the collection of a passionate English collector.

Made of aged black mohair with black-lacquered, wooden eyes, and felt paw pads, he has a pearl thread nose nose and (single thread) dusky, a pale pink mouth and red-stitched claws. Traditionally filled with wood shavings, he growls when turned backwards. This replica has a patinated steel button and white ear tag, similar to those on the 1908 original. He comes with a certificate in a presentation box.
