Eleanor is a rare large old Steiff bear from the 1950s. She is a large bear standing at 20” (50cm) with glass eyes and pale golden mohair. She has a tilt growler that only tends to be heard when you tap her back nowadays. Her felt paw pads are original with some wear to the felt on her hand paws. Which does not cause her any problems. No longer has a button, tags as they were often removed for safety reasons before giving teddy to children. (they were considered a choking hazard). Overall for her age, she is in good condition and clean. With some age wear to her mohair mostly on her arms, head, and around her heels. She is a strong old bear who has been well cared for over the years. She comes with her old German bib and bells around her neck.
