STEIFF CATALOG & Miscellaneous
BOY & puppy on STEIFF COW pulltoy postcard. 1920's or 1930's vintage. slightly larger than standard postcard size. Full color glossy photo postcard with heavily embossed borders. Great photo of young boy holding puppy while sitting on a large stuffed COW Pulltoy. The toy has the older cast iron spoked wheels. I am pretty sure it is a STEIFF. Card has not been postmarked.

Limited Edition (5000) TEDDY BEAR. 17" tall. His ear tag is AM. ED. 0153/43. 100th Anniversary issue. an exact replica of the world's first Teddy Bear. this bear conforms as much as humanly possible to the historic product of 1903 in every detailed. same construction; same fabric. Issued in 1981. #2798. Quoting from the Teddy Bear Times issue #19 [http://www.teddybeartimes.com]: "In 1980, to commemorate its 100 year jubilee, the German company of Margarete Steiff produced its first limited edition Teddy Bear. This extremely important bear, known to many collectors as Papa Bear or Jubilee Bear, was made of gold mohair with excelsior (wood shavings) stuffing. The nose and claws were hand stitched. No voice box was fitted. Eleven thousand of these bears were produced, six thousand had German certificates and five thousand had English certificates for the American market. It is interesting to note that all eleven thousand certificates were actually hand signed by Hans-Otto Steiff and that all signatures on certificates since, have been a printed facsimile. Never displayed. Mint in box with acetate cover (acetate cover is dinged in corners), certificate, and original heavy cardboard outer box. scarce and desireable set. Have seen these sell for MUCH higher. 945.00
Limited Edition (8000 sets) MAMA & BABY TEDDY BEAR. 101st Anniversary of the House of Steiff. Issued in 1981. Set #3860. Mama is about 15" tall and her ear tag says 0155/38. The little one is about 6" tall and is attached to Mama by an orange anniversary sash that says STEIFF. They are a beautiful color and it says they are made of the same material, in the same style as the original Steiff Teddy Bear! Quoting from the Teddy Bear Times issue #19 [http://www.teddybeartimes.com]: in 1981, came the Mother and Baby set, which, with Papa, could make a complete family of bears for the collector. Produced in a limited edition of eight thousand sets exclusively for the American market, Mother and Baby proved to be a great success. Both bears were made of gold mohair with synthetic stuffing. Neither was fitted with a voice box. Mother bear measured 38cm and baby 15cm, an orange sash bearing the Steiff name holds the two bears together. White ear tag bears with stock number 0155/38. As with Papa, Mother and Baby sets in complete and mint condition are difficult to find. Never displayed. Mint in box with acetate cover, certificate, and original heavy cardboard outer box. scarce and desireable set. Have seen these sell for MUCH higher. 750.00
