EAN 006999 Steiff paper plush Platinum paper Teddy bear, platinum gray

Group Type:

Product Description

Platinum paper Teddy bear, is 30 cm in size, 5-way jointed, has wooden eyes, made from platinum gray colored paper plush and is limited to 919 pieces.

At the end of World War I, Steiff was faced with a lack of wool and similar plush materials. Always innovative, the company found ways to produce bears and animals with a substitute paper-based material from 1919 through 1921. This fabric made a comeback in 2010 with a special replica exclusively for Steiff Club members and in 2014 with a world wide exclusive.

Using this rediscovered technology, another "Paper Teddy bear" is now being introduced in brilliant platinum gray. The silver metallic paw pads are sewn from Piñatex®, an innovative textile made from pineapple leaf fibers. The individually crafted “boot button” style eyes are made by a long-time Steiff supplier to replicate those used by the company through about 1910. Custom chest tag design is based on Steiff’s early elephant logo, a trademark frequently used as a stencil to paint identification on the company’s transport crates in the early 1900’s.

Only 919 pieces will be manufactured, marking the year 1919 when the first paper bear made its debut.

Platinum paper Teddy bear comes in a box with certificate of authenticity.
