Mistletoe Teddy bear by Steiff 036859

30cm white alpaca jointed bear with handmade mistletoe bouquet.

The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe comes from the ancient Celts where the evergreen mistletoe was considered a medical and magic plant. Under its protection against illness, witchcraft, demons, fire, and enemies, the Celts gave each other (beneath the mistletoe) the kiss of peace. "With the white felt I want to convey the feeling of the white and icy wintertime with snow and ice, "says the designer. "The golden parts of ornaments in the bouquet and the golden bow have to support the holy and magical wishes which are represented by the mistletoe and give a feeling of the magic and spirit of Wintertime," she continues. Completely handmade by Steiff artisans, the mistletoe bouquet hearkens back to a time when Steiff made animals and accessories of felt - proving that this grand tradition lives on at Steiff today with this breathtaking Mistletoe bear. It's a must-have for holiday decorating and collecting.

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.
