Steiff's exquisite musical teddy bear "Long To Reign Over Us" commemorates the landmark milestone of Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest reigning British Monarch, surpassing the record of longevity of reign originally held by her Great-Great-Grandmother; Queen Victoria.
"Long to Reign Over Us" has been crafted from the finest winter white mohair and beautiful wool felt. Her right foot is embroidered with a musical bar of notes in golden thread. These play the first score in the National Anthem, God Save the Queen. She proudly wears a replica of her Coronation robe made from cotton velvet lined with satin, with a faux fur trim hand painted with ermine spots and decorative golden buttons with a cord fastening. Resting regally upon her head is an elaborately detailed crown of metal work and faceted, sparkling crystals. Her turn-key music box plays God Save the Queen; the British National Anthem that hails back to the eighteenth century.
This regal bear is limited to just 2,015 pieces and comes presented with her numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
