The Brothers - Provenance

The Brothers - Provenance
These dear antique Steiff bears belonged to the Bisenius brothers and come with a genuine letter of provenance explaining their history. The brothers were born in Minnesota to German immigrants, Willis Mikael in 1905 and his younger brother in 1907.

Both bears have been much-loved in their day. The larger retains his blank button in ear and the smaller bear lost his long ago. According to the letter, both bears had the bodies re-stuffed with old yarn scraps. Larger 12" ted has many darns to the felt pads and a few darns to the chest. He is in strong condition with overall wear to the mohair and the stuffing has shifted in his upper arms where he was lovingly carried. His smaller friend has fragile areas to one shoulder and one wrist so he needs to sit quietly as he leaks a little wood wool in these places. He needs an understanding home where he will not be lifted by the arms! This little chap has small darns to the pads and measures 10" tall - please enquire for more details
