«« SOLD »»This wonderful bear is in excellent condition, black boot button eyes, brown stitched nose, mouth and claws, inoperative squeaker, cream felt pads, some soft stuffing and blank button, --16in. (41cm.) high
This and the other white Steiff Teddy Bear (circa 1913) on this site came from Canada.
The original vendor of these two bears Muriel Bowers found them in a trunk in her grandmother's house where they were found wrapped in family quilts.
Muriel did not remember the bears, but the photograph here shows her holding one of the two bears outside her grandmother's house age 2 or 3 in 1931.
She believes that her two bears must have been her mother and aunt's bears who were born in 1904 and 1906.
Condition is excellent with only a very slight amount of thinning.
