Teddy & Me
Our Price: $1,475.00

This nostalgic set was based on a vintage photograph of a Victorian girl and her impressive Steiff teddy bear. The photo dates circa 1910 and was featured on the cover of a 1996 Christies auction catalogue which included the actual bear in the photograph. Over 20 years later this charming photograph became the inspiration for Teddy & Me.

Teddy measures 8 inches tall and is made of the finest Shulte mohair in a soft light brown shade. Five-way jointed, Teddy has glass eyes, hand-embroidered features and paw pads made of 100% wool felt. His winsome companion, Me, is a 12" all-felt doll with joints at the hips, shoulders and neck for expressive posing. A sculptural torso and limbs and separately sewn fingers add to her realism. Me has a hand-knotted wig made of the finest mohair and a lovely molded felt face with hand painted features. She is costumed in an authentically detailed Victorian Summer dress made of embroidered Swiss lace with tiny pintucks and mother-of-pearl buttons. Around her wrist is a dainty pearl bracelet and on her feet, hand-cobbled leather Mary Jane shoes.

Produced in an edition of only 100 pieces, Teddy & Me comes beautifully boxed with a numbered tag and corresponding certificate of authenticity.
