Cream 1905 Centre Seam

Cream 1905 Centre Seam
This stunning 20" Steiff teddy bear has a centre-seam and blank button in ear. He dates to 1905 and is all-original with an adorable face.

His beautiful creamy white mohair is in excellent, clean condition, with minimal mohair loss, retaining approximately 95%. There are no weak or saggy areas to his stuffing and he has the lighter feel of the earlier Steiff bears. Otto retains his original rust embroidered claws, rust nose and mouth stitching and it is all fully intact.

His centre-seam construction is special. Only one out of seven early Steiff bears had centre-seam heads, which make them rare and extremely desirable for collectors.

Otto is wearing a beautiful antique Victorian turquoise velvet coat with a lace collar. The fabric is soft and fits him perfectly. The coat has some wear from age and the ribbon is frayed, but still ties at the collar. Please enquire for more details...
