Thoughtfully, he inspects us with his glass eyes. No wonder! It was by chance that he was discovered at all: a collector in England bought a case of old dolls and Teddy bears at an auction - by remote bid, as she liked the auction description so much. When she unpacked the case, she discovered a fascinating black bear with no marking and immediately suspected it could be a Steiff bear! She then did everything possible to find out about his provenance and her bear is indeed an original Steiff bear from 1912. In spring 2015, the replica of this wonderful bear will be released: 34 cm tall, 5-way jointed, in the finest jet black mohair, with a growler and stuffed with wood wool in the traditional way. Our replica is limited to only 1,000 pieces and wears a patinated steel "underscored button".
Caution This is not a toy and is not suitable for children.
Here is a photo below i took at the Steiff auction last july 2014 of Black Jack what a great find.
