Richard Steiff is without doubt the most important figure in the history of the teddy bear. He invented the teddy bear in 1902. And then just a few years later he created the first-ever bear with disc-jointing – which became the benchmark for all future Steiff bears. This bear was called The Perfekt Bear!
Now, Steiff have produced a replica of this historic bear in a unique tribute to Richard Steiff. This very special bear captures the essence of Richard Steiff brilliantly – he’s made from fabulous slate-grey mohair, with black boot-button eyes and hand-stitched features. Richard famously didn’t like ties so he designed a bespoke tailored jacket with a stand-up mandarin collar. This bear wears an exact replica of this trademark suit in “perfekt” miniature.
Issued in a strict limited edition of just 1,902 pieces worldwide.
