Steiff EAN 403163 Teddy Bear Replica 1948 Limited Edition (Retired)
Limited edition of 1.000 pieces worldwide
Although retired from Steiff this teddy is brand new and is complete with original Steiff box and certificate

After the end of World War II, shortages forced Steiff designers to find alternative materials as the company attempted to resume normal production. As traditional mohair was unavailable, other types of fibre and fabrics were used in production. From this remarkable period of history comes our Teddy bear replica 1948. Instead of mohair, the plush is made from blond alpaca, which most closely approximates the look and feel of the wool plush used at the time. Because wool felt was also scarce during this period, the Teddy bear's paw pads are sewn from a stable cotton fabric. Like the original, our replica has glass eyes, is softly stuffed with excelsior, and has a squeaker. The nose is hand-stitched. Airbrushed coloured accents help to bring about an aged look. A period-style "underscored button" completes this exceptional vintage design. .
