Steiff Bear On Wheels Musuem Collection Toy
The renowned German bear company, Steiff, released a collection of museum replica bears in commemoration of it’s centennial anniversary in the 1980s. This bear was originally purchased at that time and has been stored in a climate controlled room for nearly 30 years. It is a reproduction of the original “Bear On Wheels” toy and had been created in a limited run of 12,000 units. This piece is numbered and authenticated as shown in the pictures. The bear measures about 6.5 inches in length and stands around 5″ high. The bear’s fine plush mohair curves around a molded metal frame. The wheels appear to be made from metal. It comes in the original box and has never been opened. There is a very minute ding in the box which is hardly noticeable and will not affect the display of the toy. Other than that the toy is in mint condition.
