With Christmas around the corner, Steiff presents the Christmas Rose...

.... The legend of the Christmas Rose dates back to 15th century Germany. According to the fable, a young girl named Madelon wanted to visit the Christ child in the manger, but had no gift to bring.

From her tears sprang a plant with beautiful blooms - "The Christmas Rose," Steiff's tribute to this touching story is a Teddy bear made of rare ice green alpaca with snow-white felt for its paws and feet.

The bear wears delicate Christmas roses made of felt and plush, along with branches of fir tree also carefully crafted from felt.

Two tiny golden bells on a gilded cord hang from her neck.

She is five-way jointed, has a hand-stitched golden nose and claws, and is truly a one-of-a-kind Steiff creation. This bear is a unique addition to your year-round collection and a special piece to display during the holidays.

Limited Edition 1,500. 30cm made of high quality alpaca, ice green 5-way jointed surface washable stuffed with synthetic filling material, with safety eyes with gold-plated "Button in Ear".
