This teddy is very Steiff like and made about the same time as those early Steiff bears. He is 13" tall and is a real character. He has about 50% of his mohair and a couple of small holes but he is a strong bear. The pads were recovered long ago with fabric from kid gloves. His joints all work well and his boot button eyes look to be his original. We are not sure that the backs of his ears may have been replaced but its hard to tell. We love that expression that only these early bears have.
