EAN 673696 Steiff mohair Kumpel Otto Teddy bear, black

Group Type:

Product Description


The Kumpel Otto Teddy bear, is 15 cm in size, made from black colored mohair and is limited to 1500 pieces.

This Teddy bear represents a whole industry and the people who work in it. Germany’s Ruhrgebiet is firmly linked to mining. For centuries, the landscape of the Ruhrgebiet has been shaped by coal mining. In our mind’s eye, we see pictures of shaft towers, smoking chimneys, vast piles of coal and miners with blackened faces when we think of the “Kohlenpott” mining region in the Ruhr area. Coal has been mined underground in the region since the late Middle Ages.

About 10 years ago, there were still 300 collieries in the area. At its high point, the Ruhr coal industry employed almost 600,000 people; now, it is possibly soon going to be history.

Kumpel Otto (“Kumpel” is the German word for “miner”, but also for “buddy” or “mate”) wears a cotton neckerchief. His nose and claws are hand-stitched, and the color of the floss matches the bronze alloy trolley.

This bear was issued by the German department store Karstadt in Muelheim, Dortmund and Bochum.

Otto comes in a box with certificate of authenticity.
