Polar the Titanic Bear by Steiff Size: 12.59 inches EAN: 682087 2012 North American limited edition
The Steiff Polar the Titanic Bear, ean 682087, is made of snow white alpaca and wears a detailed sailor suit. He's every bit as charming as the original, which survived the tragedy 100 years ago.
Daisy Spedden and her husband, Frederic, were a wealthy couple with a passion for travel. In early 1912, the Spedden family sailed from New York to Algiers and then on to the French Riviera. Returning through Paris, the family boarded the train for Cherboug; there they took a small boat out to the huge Titanic.
On the night of the disaster, Polar, a beloved Steiff bear purchased at FAO Schwarz, was tucked under his master's arms as the Speddens were lowered down the side of the Titanic in a lifeboat. After the sinking the survivors were swung up the side of the rescue ship. But Polar found himself forgotten in the empty lifeboat - until a sailor rescued him and returned him to his joyous young master, Douglas. Steiff brings to life this true story with Polar the Titanic Bear, a magnificent interpretation of the original bear.
