Dante Bear by Steiff 036965

30cm fully jointed bear made from green tipped mohair. Complete with growler.

The most important part of any Teddy bear is his mohair. Our artisans at Steiff Schulte are constantly striving to provide us with new fabric choices from which we can make interesting new bears for our collectors around the world. Dante is a perfect example of Steiff Schulte’s innovators at work. His unusual green mohair is a work of art within itself. It’s an extremely short pile dyed using an ancient Indonesian “batik” technique. The result is a random pattern that makes each and every bear unique. But Dante’s mohair is just the beginning of his wonders. He has a classical look, but is yet somehow modern. He bridges the gap between traditional Steiff and today’s artist Teddy bears. He has a shaved muzzle, sparkling black eyes, antiqued paw pads, loosely jointed head, and hand-stitched nose and claws. Around his neck, he wears a patinated bell on a cord for good luck. And any collector would feel lucky to own this exceptional Steiff Teddy bear.

Limited Edition: 1500
All steiff limited editions come with the famous Gold plated 'button-in-ear' with white tag and are supplied in a cream Steiff presentation box.

Steiff have been manufacturing bears and other collectable characters in their German Factories for over 125 years. As with all those characters made in the early days, it is still the manual skills and attention to detail that make each Steiff product wonderfully unique. Each Steiff bear is signified by a "Tag" in its left ear.
