Steiff 1928 Replica Clown arrives, and is stunning....

.... He's made of mohair that has been dyed, then bleached, to mimic the effects of decades of sun exposure. His hat has been randomly airbrushed with spots of discoloration to add to his aged effect. Even his collar is slightly frayed, as it would be on a real antique Teddy bear.

There's nothing quite like the look of a well-loved Steiff Teddy bear. The faded mohair, the play-worn appearance, even the spots of discoloration it all adds to the appeal. With fewer and fewer vintage Teddy bears available on the market, more and more collectors are becoming interested in Teddy bears that have been artistically aged to simulate antique Teddy bears. That's why Steiff created their Vintage Teddy Clown Replica.

Made of finest mohair, yellow. Jointed, surface washable. Limited Edition 1,928 pieces. Stuffed with wood shavings. With squeaker. With pleated collar made of silk organza and a felt hat with pompons sewn on. With underscored buttonĀ made of patinated steel.
