Cinnamon - the $175,000 Bear
In 1994, a 90-year-old Steiff bear made history and became the world's most expensive teddy bear. The bear was a lifelong companion of the late Colonel Bob Henderson, one of the world's most highly respected arctophiles (teddy bear lovers). After spending 86 years with Colonel Henderson, this rare-cinnamon-colored, center-seam Steiff teddy bear was put up for auction. It broke all records as it sold for an incredible $175,000! It was this extraordinary tale that made us determined to persuade Steiff to create an extra special tribute to this record-breaking bear.
From the traditional center seam...to its bright boot-button eyes..to its gloriously thick curly mohair, Cinnamon is a delight to behold and touch. Cinnamon is fully jointed, just like the original, and comes complete with the exclusive white Steiff "button-in-ear" limited edition label -- no more than 1,994 will ever be made in honor of the year "Teddy Girl" hit the headlines!
Standing an impressive 18" tall and available exclusively from the Danbury Mint, Cinnamon is certain to become the centerpiece of your collection. Orders will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and once they're gone, they'll be gone for good. Place your order today!
