Silberstein c1906
This dear old fellow is a German Silberstein bear dating c1906. He is dressed as he came to us in his vintage clothes and he oozes charm. Ted is in strong condition with his original velvet nose and linen pads. There are small repairs on his tummy and the stuffing has shifted in his neck which makes him a little "slumpy". There is overall wear to the mohair, he has a non-working squeaker and measures 12" tall - please enquire for more details

Heinrich Silberstein began manufacturing jointed teddy bears in 1906. Steiff tried to take legal action against the company because they claimed a bear with movable limbs was their own invention. However, many other manufacturers also begain producing this type of teddy bear and the Steiff monopoly was broken
