Teddy Bear Replica 1908 RMS (35 cm)SH403453
In 1908 six coloured Teddy bears were commissioned for presentation in London. Four were never seen again: pink, yellow, green and black. Until now. By virtue of a passionate knowledgeable Steiff collector, a never seen before black 1908 has been discovered. The Teddy bear¡¦s name is Bruno. He is singular, compelling and tremendous skilful work has resulted in this exceptional and significant replica. Our archivist and designers were absorbed by his details. His red stitched claws and fine sculpting gave affirmative evidence of his early date. Our archivist was fascinated to see Bruno¡¦s unusual very noteworthy additional single mouth stitch. One that mirrors the first black Teddy bear made in 1907 as a prototype and which Richard used to enhance the lifelike appearance of his Teddy bears.
