STEIFF Hot Water Bottle Teddy

$698.00

TEDDY BEAR WITH HOT WATER BOTTLE 1908

Steiff World Wide Limited Edition

23",This Teddy bear can tell a truly eventful story: In 1906, an extremely harsh winter fell on the city of Berlin and  covered it in snow - and as we all know, necessity is the mother of invention, a Teddy bear was converted into a holder for a hot-water bottle in order to bring a little warmth into the cold days with extremely low temperatures.

In March 1907, this hot-water bottle bear, in whose tummy a hot-water bottle made of metal was hidden that could be filled with hot water, was entered by Steiff as a registered design. The friendly Teddy bear with the wide open, boot-button eyes that look out into the world has a friendly as well as pragmatic nature and is made of light brown mohair and stuffed with wood shavings. On the inside - where the hotwater bottle is found - he has a lining made of felted wool. Whereas this special Teddy bear was produced in 2001 with a size of 50 centimeters, the replicas of this edition have an impressive size of 58 centimeters in a Limited Edition of 1,908 pieces.

Each of these "warm-hearted" bears also "bears" the Steiff underscored "Button-in Ear" made of patinated steel.
