A c.1912 rare and wonderful large 16" Steiff Polar Bear. He is fully jointed and has the ball jointed neck. In great condition with his early Steiff button. There is a 85/90% white mohair cover and he has his original nose/mouth/claw stitching. His joints all work well and he can stand on all four legs or on his hind legs. We love his cute little tail. The ball joint neck means you can pose his head looking up down or sideways. His felt pads have some holes to two of then one is in excellent order and the other has some tiny holes. Even his original growler works he is simply stunning and quite hard to find in this size and condition.
