Steiff c1910 - Provenance

Steiff c1910 - Provenance
This dear old fellow was purchased by ourselves from the original family and the provenance is guaranteed to be genuine. We have decided to leave him just as he came and let the new owner decide whether or not to have him restored/cleaned up or leave him just as he is!

Ted belonged to Molly Bluett Cole who was born in 1910 in London. A typed note explains that Teddy lived all his life in Barnet until he was rescued prior to a house clearance in 2020. There are also photo copies of Molly as a child and the house in which they lived. It is wonderful to know his story!

Teddy was obviously very much-loved in his day. He is missing most of the left ear and there is much overall wear and balding, a tear to the right ankle exposing the wood wool and small hole to the chest and one arm. He has original boot button eyes and remains of his nose stitching with brown under felt. The pads were recovered many moons ago and the stuffing has shifted in places. He is strong enough to take repair or fine to leave as he is, even though a little dusty!

Please enquire for more photos and details about this old character who measures 18" tall
