Beautiful "Monty"

Beautiful
This is one of the most beautiful giant Steiff bears we have ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. "Monty", as he is affectionately known (although in his early days he was known as "der Bar") dates c1908 and measures a grand 28" tall. He is in lovely condition and retains all his original features with FF button in ear. He has an excellent mohair coverage, black stitched nose, mouth and claws and felt pads (underlying blue felt exposed on the foot pads). He also has a story to tell...

Much of his early life was spent in Vienna and he belonged to a young boy who loved him dearly. The full story is shown on the first link page. This fabulous bear was sold at Bonhams, London in November 2011 and has been in a couple of private collections since that time (a copy of the catalogue will accompany him)
