Product Description

At the end of World War I, Steiff was faced with a serious shortage of materials to make their teddy bears and stuffed animals. Mohair and felt were not available, so the innovative designers had to come up with an alternative fabric. The one thing that was in plentiful supply was wood so they cleverly devised a way to turn wood shavings into a paper-like thread that could be woven into fabric.

Now, to celebrate the centenary of these original paper plush bears, Steiff have created a very special limited-edition Golden Paper Plush Bear – exclusively for Danbury Mint,

His distinctive ‘fur’ is made from golden paper plush and his gleaming paw pads from pineapple leaf fibres. His nose and mouth are hand-stitched and his expressive eyes are made from wood!

Only 1,921 bears can be made worldwide. This is an exceptionally small edition for such a distinctive Steiff bear. Don’t miss the chance to add him to your collection.

12" (30cm) standing.
