Steiff Excelsior Stuffed Mohair Teddy Bear with Growler for Sale


Steiff Excelsior Stuffed Mohair Teddy Bear with Growler

We have for you this adorable Excelsior stuffed Mohair Teddy Bear with growler that was manufactured by Steiff of Giengen, Germany.  

We believe this to be an early Teddy Bear with working growler. He needs to be tilted upside down and back to get it to work. It is stuffed with Excelsior stuffing and is very stiff. The fur is mohair and it is worn in some places. The paw pads are felt. This is a well-loved and cared-for toy.  We are not sure if the bow is original, but it is definitely old. He has brown glass eyes with pupils. He appears to have 5 claws, the black thread is hard to see in his paw fur. Although there is no button or tags, there is a hole in his ear where his button/tag mostly likely was. He is 5-way metal jointed.

For its age, this piece is in very good all original condition with no repairs, restorations, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and display. This is approximately 20” H. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
