Spectacled Ted Cub by Steiff - 35cm


Catalogue number: 690556

Richard Steiff devoted his life to creativity and innovative design after he designed the world's very first teddy bear with jointed movement in 1902. He took constant inspiration form the animal kingdom which he studied in great depth. Over 115 years later, Margarete Steiff GmbH continues to strive today for the same style and imagination in their teddy bears.

As a celebration of these values, this very handsome Spectacled ted cub is the first in a series of bear cubs that embody both traditional and modern design.

Made from the finest black and cream alpaca and delicately airbrushed, the Spectacled ted cub is a tribute to the only living bear species native to South America and one of the most endangered bears on the planet, second only to the Giant Panda; the Spectacle Bear's closest living relative. Showcasing not only the beauty of this majestic species but also the distinctive hallmarks of a Steiff teddy bear, the Spectacled ted cub stands to pave the way for the future inspiration of design that began with Richard Steiff's original vision over a century before.

He is limited to just 1,000 pieces and is exclusive to the UK. He comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
