1908 replica 403453


In 1908 six coloured Teddy bears were commissioned for presentation in London.
Four were never seen again: pink, yellow, green and black.
By virtue of a passionate knowledgeable Steiff collector, a never seen before black 1908 has been discovered.
The Teddy bear’s name is Bruno.
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.
