EAN 403163 Steiff alpaca Teddy bear 1948, blond

Group Type:

Product Description


The Teddy bear 1948, is 29 cm in size, 5-way jointed, has a squeaker, glass eyes, is stuffed with wood shaving, made from blond colored alpaca and is limited to 1000 pieces.

After the end of World War II, shortages forced Steiff designers to find alternative materials as the company attempted to resume normal production. As traditional mohair was unavailable, other types of fibre and fabrics were used in production. From this remarkable period of history comes the Teddy bear replica 1948. Instead of mohair, the plush is made from blond alpaca, which most closely approximates the look and feel of the wool plush used at the time. Because wool felt was also scarce during this period, the Teddy bear's paw pads are sewn from a stable cotton fabric. The nose is hand-stitched. Airbrushed colored accents help to bring about an aged look. A period-style "underscored" button completes this exceptional vintage design.

This Teddy comes in a box with a certificate of authenticity.
