Steiff Collectable Mohair " Claire's Leo Lion "
The Steiff “Family collection” of limited editions presents recreations of favourite Teddy bears and animals owned by children from this “royal family" of toymakers.
A magnificent and majestic non jointed lying lion owned by Claire Steiff Meisel (Richard Steiff’s granddaughter) is the second edition in the series.
This regal creature has been meticulously hand crafted to capture the enduring charm of the original. Each piece is an impressive example of Steiff artistry, with intricate airbrushing, individually stitched facial features, and skillfully painted paws.
This splendid specimen is limited to a production run of only 1,000 pieces. With his gold-plated “Button in Ear,” Claire’s “king of the jungle” will add a royal touch to any Steiff Collection.
