ULTRA RARE1910-1918 Steiff Pantom (5328 P) Antique Teddy BearAMAZING CONDITION
His felt pads are all original and in generally great condition apart from one hand which has been stitched together, and one foot that has had a few stitches added. His growler no longer works but rattles around when hes moved.
As hes a puppet, he was designed with rod joints to make his movement loose and more realistic. The ends of his limbs are also weighted so that they swing better.
The six strings are tied to integral cotton loops, which are secured tightly to the bear's mohair - one at the bottom of his back, one on the top of his head, one on each arm, and one on each leg. The limb strings also pass through additional metal guides which are located on the chest (x2), and the tip of each ear.In addition to being in such lovely condition, he also retains his Steiff ear button, and the remains of his white paper label underneath. His boot button eyes are original, as are all his nose, mouth and claw stitching. The original wooden controller and strings were lost, and were replaced with later Steiff reproductions. This is the most wonderful bear that weve ever had the pleasure to own. Hes what we would class as one of the pinnacle of Steiff's bears and. We never expect to see another - he would be the star of any collection. Please note this is a vintage toy that is not intended for small children.
