This signed Steiff teddy, has metal rods In it’s legs, excelsior wood wool stuffed, Mohair , and has pink glass eyes. He’s in mostly good/ fair condition. Unfortunately he does need some restoration, he has patches of mohair missing (he’s been well played with over the years!), and his eyes are loose but still present.

 
This measures 31cm in length x 27.5cm in height x 7cm in width. 
 
Steiff bears from 1905 had blank buttons, and those from 1906 through the mid-1920s had buttons embossed with “Steiff,” with the vertical line of the second “f” turning into a tail that trailed back under the name, extending as far as the “e.” These “long trailing f” early examples also had white ear tags that changed slightly in size and imprint over their two decades of appearances. This Steiff also has metal rods in his legs showing he’s an earlier example. 
 
The 1920s were a period of great experimentation in terms of Steiff bear design and many novelties were introduced at that time. They include Teddy Rose, Teddy Clown, Teddy Baby, and Petsy. These patterns integrated colorful or tipped mohair, child-like proportions and expressions, and new details, including accessories as well as non-traditional stitching and eye colors.
