‘KAISER’ VERY RARE ANTIQUE STEIFF BEAR, WITH STEIFF FF BUTTON IN EAR
Kaiser is for his age in really good condition. So rare to find these earlier Steiff riding bears now, even more so to find one still with his FF Button in ear. Which dates him to being made between c.1926-1934.He has mohair fur, glass eyes, his nose stitching has some wear from being stroked probably which just adds to his considerable charm. He is on a metal frame with wooden wheels. He is a good size and measures from the floor to the top of his neck 20″ (50cm) Length from front wheel to end of his heels 20″ (51cm) width from outer wheel to outer wheel 12.5″ (31cm) He has ‘eccentric wheels’ so when a pull cord is once again attached to his front pulley he will follow along in his own eccentric way.
He still has his pull chord and ring for growler but it only pulls out a short way and he no longer growls. His very life like mohair fur is really good for his great age, with gentle wear to his back and back of ears from being ridden many years ago. But see photos not huge wear just signs of his great age and that he has been very well cared for and treated. His felt paw pads are very good and original just a few small holes to the felt. His metal frame and wheels are good for their age with some signs of age with loss of paint as would be expected. He is from a non smoking home and a truly special really rare antique Steiff bear.

‘NEDDY’ OLD 1950’S STEIFF DONKEY ON WHEELS, BUTTON IN EAR
Neddy is a rare superb example of an old Steiff donkey on wheels from the 1950’s. He has been kept boxed for some time and so is in very good original condition for his age. He still has very good airbrush markings, mohair fur with realistic mane and tail. Glass eyes, original felt paw pads, still has his old ring metal growler but that no longer makes a sound. So rare to find one still with what looks like all his original tack on him. With original Steiff metal frame and wheels which have Steiff stamped on the tyres.
He has his Steiff button in ear (raised script, thin letters) with yellow stock label frayed but still readable. Ean number faded but you can make out .13_ _/:20 Dates him to being made 1959-1966.

Length from front wheel to end of the back one 18” (45cm) Width 9” (23cm) approximately.
His mohair is overall very good indeed for his age with only minimal signs of age wear mostly on his muzzle see photos.

Some wear to paint, and minor signs of age rusting to wheels and frame.We have never had such a good clean example before he is very realistic and adorable. Email for his photo file. £595
