In 1902 Richard Steiff, a nephew of Margarete Steiff, designed the first jointed bear. His invention was presented to the public during the 1903 spring fair in Leipzig. Soon after this event, the Steiff "Teddy Bear" became famous the world over.Since these early days, collectors and enthusiasts around the world are showing an ever growing interest in Steiff teddy bears. This teddy bear was called "Teddy Girl" and Steiff made in 1997 a replica of this Steiff-Bear with the name Replica 1905, mohair, red-brown, 50 cm.
