Steiff 1926 Teddy Bear



In the 'roaring twenties', Steiff launched a variety of lively, cheerful spirited bears that could not fail to match the mood. The most coveted of these were tipped mohair. These beautiful bears had large welcoming pupil eys, a less pronounced snout and overall had a softer friendlier face. At the 2002 Steiff festival, a tipped teddy bear from 1926 sold for 156,240 Euros and still holds the world record as the most expensive auctioned teddy bear ever! Made of brown tipped mohair, original recreation by Steiff Schulte. 5 way jointed, glass eyes, squeaker, wood wool stuffed. Period correct patented steel underscored 'Button in Ear' and period correct eartag.
