Armistice Teddy Bear by Steiff - 30cm

Steiff

Catalogue number: 690549

The wonderful Armistice teddy bear has been created through a collaboration between Steiff and the Armed Forces charity SSAFA, who have been providing lifelong support to the Armed Forces, veterans and their families since 1885.

At the outbreak of the First World War, the Government called on SSAFA to take care of the families of soldiers going to the Front; providing food for the hungry, housing for the homeless and clothing for those that were destitute.

Created to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, this beautiful Armistice teddy bear commemorates those that made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives and the SSAFA volunteers who helped over one million people between 1914 and 1918. As the UK's old tri-service military charity SSAFA continues to offer support to over 67,000 people every year.

Every Armistice teddy bear sold will include a donation of £20 in support of SSAFA and help them to continue their vital work.

The Armistice teddy bear is crafted from the finest blond mohair delicately embroidered with red poppies and she proudly displays the SSAFA emblem on her foot pad. Her charming ribbon bow represents the three military forces - The Royal Navy, The Royal Air Force and The British Army.

She is limited to 1,918 pieces and is exclusive to the UK. She comes with her numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
