When an avid added and knowledgeable British collector viewed regional auction, he knew instantly that the bear in front of him was not as described in the catalogue. The bear was a Steiff of red mohair and of outstanding character, but what was his real provenance?
Trusting his instincts, he secured the bear named “Ed”and then contacted Steiff. It was quickly organized for “Ed” to meet the experts at both old Steiff and Schulte. Only after a final visit to the Steiff archives was it confirmed “Ed” was previously an unknown bear. Believe to be prototype and the only second that bear red bear ever made by Steiff (after Alfonzo in 1908), “Ed” has been dated circa 1913. Originally made from bright red short pile, “Ed” is indeed an outstanding bear.
