In 1908 six colored bears were commissioned for presentation in London. Four were never seen again: pink, yellow, green and black. Until now! Thanks to a passionate and knowledgeable Steiff collector, a never-before-seen black 1908 bear has been discovered. The bear's name is Bruno. His red stitched claws and fine sculpting echo the look of the original in each and every way. Steiff's archivist was fascinated to see Bruno's sand-colored double mouth stitch. It is an unusual, noteworthy detail that mirrors the first black bear made in 1907 as a prototype and which Richard used to enhance the lifelike appearance of his bears. This handsome Teddy is 14" and made of mohair. Like his predecessor, this rare 1908 Replica Teddy is stuffed with wood wool and features a growler. Just as the original Teddy of 1908, he has wooden eyes and bears the steel button-in-ear with an original replicated ear tag. 1908 Replica Teddy Bear is a Worldwide white tag Steiff edition limited to only 1908 pieces. Although this is a collectors item, it is suitable for ages 14 years and up.
