Fabulous little Strunz bear dating c1904 who is rare in the fact he would originally have had a gutta percha nose. Ted is in strong condition with a good covering of blonde mohair, some balding to tummy (see photos) and totally original with felt pads and boot button eyes. There is a working squeaker in his tum, he wears a gorgeous old outfit and measures 12" tall - please enquire for more details

Wilhelm Strunz started business in 1904 in Nuremberg, one of the most famous traditional toy making regions of the country. Many of the early bears produced were very similar to the Steiff designs and even had a button in ear! After the intervention of Steiff, the rival company finally settled on stapling a tag to the ear of each soft toy. Strunz elephants have also appeared which are extremely similar to those made by Steiff.
