Here comes a vintage 1993 made Steiff teddy bear named Alice (after Theodore Roosevelts oldest daughter).Bear has 1903 and 1993 embroidered on his hand pads to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the first shipment of Steiff bears from Germany to the US!
These bears were made in 1993 in strictly limited edition of 5000 for the US market only.
You will observe in the photos that our Alice bear here has a big golden coloured Steiff button without the “Steiff” inscription, meaning she is one of the exceedingly rare, not numbered over-produced bears!
Alice Steiff bear measures 42 cm / 16 ½ according to the textbooks, and measured to the middle of her head, I would give the size rather with 40 cm / 15 ¾ inches.
As you can see in the photos vintage Steiff anniversary bear Alice is in pristine condition, the beige, orange tipped mohair is all fine, the joints never moved, so they are as in their first days, chest tag and a “important information” leave on her foot are present, the original US colours striped bow is immaculate, as are the embroidered parts. The voice in Alice’s belly gives a good growl most of the time, sometimes it only squeaks a bit. Bear is firmly stuffed.
Please, do be aware that this listing is for the vintage Steiff teddy Bear ONLY! All other items you see in the photographs will NOT come with this old bear!
