Claire's Lion by Steiff - 38cm


Catalogue number: 006210

Claire's Lion is the second piece in Steiff's exquisite series inspired by the Steiff family and their very own collections.

This handsome lion captures the enduring charm of the original lion belonging to Claire Steiff Meisel; Richard Steiff's granddaughter. Carefully airbrushed and meticulously hand crafted; Claire's Lion is a beautiful recreation of a treasured childhood friend.

Made from the finest caramel and brown mohair like his predecessor, this lovely lion is an impressive example of Steiff's artistry from his intricately airbrushed details to his skillfully painted paws.

He is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide and comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve. Each lion is accompanied by a copy of the photograph of Claire and her lion in a custom made photo frame that is inspired by the green window panes of the Steiff factory hall.
