Four were never seen again: pink, yellow, green and black.
How lucky we all are as by virtue of a passionate knowledgable Steiff collector, a never seen before black 1908 has been discoverered.
The bears name is Bruno.
He is singular, compelling and tremendous skilful work has resulted in this exceptional and significant replica.
Our archivist and designers were absorbed by his details.
His red stitched claws and fine sculpting gave affirmative evidence of his early date.
