This charming replica of the 1906 teddy bear gives a respectful nod to the era when Steiff bears were given the title 'Teddy bear' after US President Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt. This beautiful replica celebrates this illustrious time and is made from the finest honey brown mohair. He is stuffed with wood shavings in the traditional way and has been delicately aged with airbrushing and his nose, mouth and feet are dusky pink which was very unusual for this time. He has wooden button eyes and has a patinated steel underscored "Button in Ear" which features the original design of tag. His modern tag is under his arm.
