One Steiff A Day: Johann

The Steiff 2011 Worldwide Limited Edition & North American Limited Edition collections are now available for pre-order at Mostly Bears. For the month of February, we'll be featuring "One Steiff A Day".

Today, may we introduce,

Auction finds are a major source of inspiration for our designers at Steiff. They follow the Teddy bear market closely, attending auctions and collecting catalogues - always on the lookout for wonderful rarities to reintroduce or reinterpret for our devoted collectors. The inspiration for Johann was found in an country auction. He had everything our collectors - and our designers - look for in a classic Teddy. First of all, his face is truly inviting and endearing. He has a hand stitched nose and sparkling black eyes. His nose is hand-stitched with black floss in the traditional Steiff style. His body, too, is very typically "Steiff". Discover Johann - just the way our auction watchers did - and we think you'll fall in love with him, too.

EAN 036835, 18 inches, LE 1500, $360.
Preorders may be placed on the website. Refundable deposit of $50 holds your piece. All pieces ordered by 2/25/11 will receive a $36 store credit to use on any purchase from Mostly Bears.

Thanks for looking! :)
