Steiff Platinum Paper Teddy Bear 006999

Description

Steiff Platinum Paper Teddy Bear 006999

This is the first paper plush Teddy ever manufactured in platinum grey. The technology for making paper “fur” (originally developed to create replacement textiles during post-war shortages) was rediscovered by Steiff in 2010. Since then, it has been used for only the most rare and important limited editions. Silver metallic paw pads are sewn from Piñatex®, an innovative textile made from pineapple leaf fibers. Features wooden eyes from renewable resources. The eyes are individually crafted “boot button”-style to replicate those used by the company through about 1910. The custom chest tag design is based on Steiff’s early elephant logo, a trademark frequently used as a stencil to paint identification on the company’s transport crates in the early 1900’s. Only 919 pieces will be manufactured, marking the year 1919 when the first paper bear made its debut.
