Steiff Jonathan Edwards Bear
by Steiff
Size: 11.81 inches (seated - 8")
EAN: 666421

- Sometimes referred to as the "outhouse" bear -


"As an extremely popular President of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt was always receiving gifts from his ardent supporters. One that was most unusual, even for the outdoorsman, was a live bear cub. His children were terribly excited, but Roosevelt insisted that the bear either be released into the wild or sent off to a zoo.
Remarkably, while Teddy was involved with all his Presidential duties, his children smuggled the bear off to an outbuilding on the White House grounds. After every meal they would quietly smuggle table scraps and assorted leftovers out to the bear.
They even gave the bear a name, "Jonathan Edwards". Living quite happily in the building, and obviously very well fed, the bear grew larger, fatter and noisier. Eventually Roosevelt heard noises from the outbuilding and went to investigate. Imagine his surprise. Despite the pleas of his children, Jonathan Edwards was sent off to a new home in the zoo."

The Jonathan Edwards Bear was produced in 2001 in a limited edition of 1500.  Holding a red apple, he features glass eyes, hand stitched nose and mouth. Included is an individually numbered hang tag certificate and a Steiff box fashioned after an outhouse. Rare Retired Edition! Original suggested retail: $250.
