By Steiff Classics & Collectors
Teddy Bear Replica 1908 Black Mohair Growler Collectable.
A Limited Edition of only 1908 pieces worldwide.
In 1908 six coloured bears were presented in London. Four were never seen again, pink, yellow, green and black.
By virtue of a passionate knowledgable Steiff collector, a never before seen black 1908 has been discovered. The bears name is Bruno. He is singular, compelling and tremendously skilful work has resulted in this exceptional and significant replica.
Steiff's archivist and designers were absorbed by his details. His red stitched claws and fine sculpting gave affirmative evidence of his early date.
Steiff's archivist was fascinated to see Bruno's unusual very noteworthy additional single mouth stitch. One that mirrors the first black bear made in 1907 as a prototype and which Richard used to enhance the lifelike appearance of his bears.
34cm / made of the finest mohair replicated by "Steiff Schulte" / Wood wool stuffed / with a growler and wooden eyes / hand stitches red claws / extraordinary double mouth stitch with a sand-coloured yarn & a underscored "button in the ear " out of steel and original replicated ear tag.
