"Grandma's Bear" c1906

This enchanting c1906 Steiff teddy was known by her family as "Grandma's Bear". She lived her early life in America and arrived in the UK wearing only her very old, worn knitted booties. She was given an antique dress decorated with tiny glass beads. The cream mohair has much overall wear and her pads have been recovered. There are various repairs including daring around her muzzle and to the front seam of one ankle. Both arms have extra seams running down the front where her fabric had split - likewise the top of both legs. But she is still a strong bear and all her joints work fine. Grandma's bear (affectionately known as "Nan") is mainly filled with kapok and has the softer feel of the earliest Steiff. She no longer retains her button and measures 16" tall
