Lot of 2: Early Steiff "Blank Button" Teddy Bears.

Lot 0049 Details

Description
The larger is a cinnamon brown mohair bear with upturned nose, "shoe button" eyes, black stitched nose, mouth and claws with a blank button in the left ear. He is articulated at the neck, shoulders and hips and has original felt paw pads. Miraculously, although somewhat soft in the torso, he retains most of his original gold mohair with very little loss considering type and age. There is a slight loss in the center right torso. The second smaller bear also has a blank button in the left ear, with "shoe button" eyes, brown stitched nose and mouth, and black stitched claws. He is articulated at the neck, shoulders and hips. All four paw pads have been replaced at some point with leather and there is considerable mohair loss especially to front of torso. Although now appearing beige in color he could have been a white when new. Dimensions: Largest : 13" x 9 -1/2". Condition:
