1904 Bear PB 28
The Steiff Collection
28 PB has metal rod connectors, making him far more durable than his string jointed predecessor 55 PB! He is made with the finest mohair.
The original PB 28 made his debut in 1904. To mark his 100th birthday, Steiff is producing him again to his original design, including wood eyes and a sealing-wax nose, complete with scratches and finger marks. 28 PB has the original stainless steel elephant logo “Button in Ear”—one of only three 2004 Steiff limited edition products wearing this piece of history!
He is stuffed with wood shavings (excelsior).

Steiff Teddies – The first teddy bear was created by Steiff as long ago as 1902. Just a short while later, the international career of this amiable fellow began. He became a friend, confidant and favorite playmate. Especially in America, the Steiff bears became famous, as no lesser person than the President and bear enthusiast, Teddy Roosevelt stood as godfather. To this day Steiff teddies remain world famous and valuable collectors items.
