Description

A decade ago, a very special Teddy bear was offered for sale at London's most prestigious auction house. Since it was expected to be one of the most desirable items in the sale, the Teddy bear was featured on the cover of the widely distributed auction catalogue. In Giengen, a Steiff designer was captivated by the image of the bear. "Wouldn't this make a wonderful replica?" he wondered. As the years passed, the designer often recalled the beauty of that special Teddy bear. After 10 years of waiting, the time has finally come to present this unique bear to our collectors. It was originally designed in 1908 and is now available as an exact replica of the original. The most unique aspect of this 5-way jointed Teddy bear, who is stuffed with wood shavings, is the elaborate plush developed by Steiff Schulte. Salmon-coloured mohair with gently faded tips and a cinnamon-coloured cotton back lend this unique Teddy bear a wonderful sense of colour. His nose, muzzle and claws have all been stitched by hand. He proudly wears an "underscored button" in ear that reflects the period of his original manufacture. Lovers of classic, traditional bears will definitely want to add this unique example of Steiff artistry to their collections.

Best materials

Millimetre by millimetre and thread for thread: simply the best.

Those wanting to create something special and unique of lasting value will need nothing less than the perfect "ingredients". This not only applies to many other areas but especially to our Steiff manufacture, where we only use "ingredients" of the highest quality: for every Steiff animal, from head to paw. Starting with the thread, the filling material, buttons, eyes and accessories and right up to what is so characteristic for every Steiff animal: it's "coat" or "fur", which gives character and form to its appearance. So since 2009 we have been particularly happy to be able to call ourselves the world's only manufacturer of stuffed toys with its own fabric factory.

Mohair

lustrous, shiny and sleek.

This natural material from the wool of the angora goat is the classic Teddy bear material. In fact, it was used for the first Teddy bear ever created. The fiber is both beautiful and durable, which accounts for the amazing number of vintage. Steiff creations that appear today in superb condition.

The Steiff purity standard

For children only the best will do!

When we say “For children only the best will do”, they are not just empty words but rather a guiding principle that has been followed for generations: Children are our present and our future. All cuddly toys that we produce and sell must therefore do more than justice to the absolute highest of standards in terms of quality, safety, processing and material attributes. We place this benchmark above all of the prescribed international checks and tests. The Steiff purity standard is a permanent fixture of Steiff's corporate philosophy and a foundation of the trust that customers place in us, and one that grows year upon year: This is marked by the Steiff seal.
