Steiff 1906 Replica teddy bear.

You are forgiven thinking this lovely fellow has just been discovered in an old dusty toy box hidden away in the attic, an easy mistake! The Teddy bear replica 1906 is an artistic imitation of a Steiff bear from yesteryear dating right back to the heydays of Steiff bears – the year of ‘Baerle’, who was later given the name ‘Teddy bear’.

Standing 40 cm tall and made of the finest, yet ‘aged’ mohair, he exudes the charm and character Richard Steiff gifted the bears all those years ago. He is stuffed with excelsior, and has an internal squeaker and wears a period correct ear tag attached to his period correct ‘underscored button’ made of patinated steel, just as the 1906 original.

Only 906 pieces are available – another reason why this bear is unique.
He comes boxed, together with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
