Wonderful Antique Vtg Steiff Bear 1918-1922 " Sam" With Button..gorgeous Boy For Sale

Dear Sam is a wonderful early Steiff bear made between 1918 and 1922 who has managed to hold onto his small 4mm Steiff button (see pic 12). He is gorgeous... He has a good covering of mohair with thinning areas and some patchy spots. He has his original glass eyes and his original mouth and nose stitching, although, he only has a couple of nose stitch strands remaining exposing his nose felt backing. He has remains of his claws, four on his right paw, two and one broken on his left paw, three on his right foot and two on his left foot. He has his original felt pads but he has had a few felt underlay repairs to both of his feet and his right paw pad (see pic 11). He has two small holes, one to the left side of his muzzle and one just above his nose, but his muzzle is very secure and nothing is spilling out (see pic 10). His wood wool filling has settled a little, mostly at the top of his chest (this causes his head to flop a bit, but his head joint is perfectly secure) and at the tops of his arms but he still sits and poses very happily. He is a lovely bigger sized bear measuring 17 inches long and is entirely wood wool filled.Overall Sam is just so lovely. He does have age wear but for a chap who is nearing his one hundredth birthday he is doing very well. He is one of the most charming bears I have ever met and we will miss his beautiful smile. If you have any questions I am always happy to answer them. He will travel via recorded delivery.
