The Ultimate teddy Bear....... this amazing creation from Steiff.

125 Karat Teddy and Elephantle

This stunning set has been produced in a very limited number of 125 pieces.

The fine mohair that is typical for Steiff has been combined with the finest raw silk for our 125 Karat Teddy bear, giving him a unique sheen. In addition to this, glittering threads of gold have been hand-knotted into his soft fur coat. If you look into Teddy bear's eyes, you may get the impression that you are falling into a sky full of stars. Set in 750/000 (18 karat) yellow gold, the pupils of his eyes are made of two sapphire cabochons, each approximately 11 mm in diameter and around 6 karat, surrounded by twenty 0.025 karat diamonds.
The Teddy bear's nose and mouth have been worked in pure 24 karat gold - like his anniversary medallion and the genuine Steiff "Button in Ear".

Made of pure wool felt, the little elephant is wearing an intricately decorated saddlecloth with a total of 47 (1.00 karat) diamonds making up the border and the "A.S." monogram. The precious stones are set in 750/000 (18 karat) white gold. Furthermore, the edge of the saddlecloth is adorned with real onyx beads, each measuring 3 mm in diameter. The little elephant's eyes are also made of genuine onyx. Hand-crafted tusks made of mammoth ivory and a 24 karat gold "Button in Ear" complete this little masterpiece.Tiny tusks with a great history: mammoth ivory comes from the tusks of the prehistoric woolly mammoth.
Its unique patterning is the result of being enclosed in ice for thousands of years and exposed to the arctic sun.

The initials "A.S." stand for Anna Steiff,
who was given the "Elefäntle"
pin cushion as a present from Margarete.

This set will be resented in a purpose build glass display case with is own built-in lighting. It will also come with a special Monte Blanc pen and a pot of gold ink made from real gold.


We have put together a luxurious programme, exclusively for you, our Steiff collectors and enthusiasts, to give you a unique look behind the scenes of all things Steiff.

Your three-day first class break will not only be marked by delicacies of a culinary nature. As our guest of honour, you will be given a guided tour of Margarete Steiff's historical birthplace. You will see where Richard Steiff invented the Teddy bear and look round the company's production facilities including the spectacular steel and glass construction that dates back to 1903.

And, as the unforgettable highlight of your visit, you will be granted access to the closely guarded archive and production facilities of Margarete Steiff GmbH.
