One Steiff A Day: Leopold

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,

The years surrounding 1912 were exciting ones at Steiff. The Teddy bear boom was still in full swing, the factory hummed, and output was extraordinary. During this time, some of the most beautiful bears ever made were produced. Exclusively for 2011, we're pleased to reintroduce a gorgeous bear from 1912 - Leopold. He's sewn from slightly distressed white mohair, features glistening black eyes, and has a brown hand-stitched mouth and claws. His expression is truly charming. Airbrushed accents add to his exceptional character. He wears a red and white ear tag and gold-plated Button in Ear, signifying his special status as a limited edition. You'll definitely want to make room in your collection for this classical bear from a very significant period in Steiff history.

EAN 036598, 15 inches, LE 1500, $265.

Preorders may be placed on the website. Refundable deposit of $50 holds your piece. All pieces ordered by 2/28/11 will receive a $27 store credit to use on any purchase from Mostly Bears.

Thanks for looking! :)
