Steiff 2008 World Wide Ltd.Edition
Inspired by the legendary figure of the American President, Theodore Roosevelt,
the Steiff designers created this handsome Teddy bear "Rough Rider"
astride a beautiful horse. This elegant rider is presented as a
cream-coloured, jointed Teddy bear made of finest alpaca. As a
statesman, he is wearing a sand colored uniform made of cotton with a
leather belt and a brown hat. The brim of his hat is fixed with the
gold-plated Steiff "Button in Ear". The horse crafted of exquisite
mohair and has been hand painted realistically and with a great deal of
detail. His hooves, the hand-made saddle as well as the bridle are made
of genuine dark brown leather decorated with studs and miniatures in
perfection. The horse with his rider is mounted on a wooden pedestal and
its glazed surface is adorned with a small brass plate that bears the
inscription "Rough Rider". Horse and rider are part of a Limited Edition
of 1,858 pieces - commensurate with Teddy Roosevelt's year of birth.
