Crystal, Swarovski Teddy Bear
The Steiff Collection
Steiff is proud to announce the creation of Crystal, the Swarovski Teddy Bear. Crystal stands 11 inches tall and made of pristine, fluffy white mohair. She is a five way jointed Teddy Bear and proudly wears a brilliant Swarovski Xilion stone as her “Button in Ear.” Around her neck is an exclusive crystal ornament by Swarovski. She is the second in the series and her production is limited to the calendar year 2005. The first bear in the series, Daniel, sold out quickly.
This series is the only time in Steiff’s 125 year history that something other than a “Steiff Button” is being used in the ear of an animal. A historic event!

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.
