Steiff Mr Vanilla Limited Edition Bear
92884 Steiff Mr Vanilla Bear, £249.00
***Limited Edition of 1,000***
Teddy bears in general, and Steiffs in particular, were all the rage in the USA in the early 1900s thanks, in no small part, to the popularity of President Teddy Roosevelt.
The original Mr Vanilla was launched in 1906 to an already-enthusiastic audience and was subsequently auctioned as part of a famous American collection. Using original archived documents, Steiff have created this authentic replica. He is made of mohair, with shoe button eyes and wood wool stuffing - just as in the original - together with the finest felt paw pads which have been expertly airbrushed around the edges for an authentic aged appearance and, of course, a patinated steel button in his ear.
Limited to only 1,000 worldwide, with numbered certificate and gift box, he stands 14 tall.
