REMARKABLE AND COMPLETE BROWN TIPPED STEIFF TEDDY CLOWN BEAR.
A fantastic example of one of the rarest and most desirable Steiff bears. Teddy is 5-ways jointed, excelsior stuffed and made from brown tipped mohair with peach colored felt paw pads. Teddy’s face is detailed with brown and black colored eyes and a black hand-embroidered nose and mouth.
