Richard Steiff gifted his bears movement, he turned them upright, jointed their limbs and thus was born the now world-famous Teddy bear.

Richard Steiff gifted his bears movement, he turned them upright, added joints to their limbs and thus was born the now world-famous Teddy bear. 

Richard first used string and discs as a method of jointing his bears. 

Richard then adopted metal rods for jointing his bears. Recognised as the second stage of Richard’s development following the string-jointed method, rod-jointed bears are viewed as a true treasure. 

A golden mohair would be Richard’s favoured choice, but he made very few using a white mohair resulting in such examples becoming great rarities. 

It is a white rarity replicated here. 

True to the original he has “rod” joints, large black boot button eyes, horizontal seam from ear to ear, a pink stitched mouth and five black stitched claws. 

He also wears a period-correct elephant “Button in Ear”. He encapsulates all those early characteristics and is proud to represent and celebrate one of the earliest surviving designs of Richard Steiff, a true marvel.
