Antique 1912 Steiff Teddy Bear
'Little Bean' is an early Steiff antique teddy bear dating to 1912. He has all the wonderful early Steiff features...long arms, big feet, sculpted legs, boot button eyes. He's 100% original including felt paw pads, boot button eyes, embroidery nose, mouth and 4 claws on each paw. Also still retains his Steiff button with long trailling 'f'. He stands 11" tall and he still retains excellent mohair coverage, I'd estimate 95% with a few spots and thinning here and there and more loss around his eyes, nose and forehead. 3 paw pads are in excellent condition and one has a rather large hole. Excelsior has settled, especially around his upper torso, which gives him his quirky little head tilt. A fine early Steiff, sure to please. $ 895. + shipping
