The Steiff “Family collection” of limited editions presents recreations of favorite Teddy bears and animals owned by children from this “royal family" of toymakers. Each plush collectible comes with an exquisitely framed photo of the child and their toy. A magnificent and majestic lion owned by Claire Steiff Meisel (Richard Steiff’s granddaughter) is the second edition in the series. This regal creature has been meticulously hand crafted to capture the enduring charm of the original. Each piece is an impressive example of Steiff artistry, with intricate airbrushing, individually stitched facial features, and skillfully painted paws. This splendid specimen is limited to a production run of only 1,000 pieces. With his gold-plated “Button in Ear,” Claire’s “king of the jungle” will add a royal touch to any Steiff collection.
