After the dramatic sinking of the Titanic in 1912, Steiff produced black teddy bears for the very first time to reflect the mood of the grieving nation of Great Britain. These “mourning bears” have remained in the memory of many people to this day. This beautiful black bear with its copper-backed, “red-cried” eyes honours the memory of the people aboard the “Titanic”, but also looks to the future with hope as part of our “Teddies for Tomorrow” series.
