Steiff 60th Anniversry Paddington Ornament
To celebrate the marmalade-loving BAFT nominated bear’s 60th anniversary Steiff were honoured and thrilled to offer a design which paid homage to Peggy Fortnum, the first illustrator to draw PADDINGTON Bear for Michael Bond’s children’s books.
She was commissioned to illustrate the first volume of adventures, A Bear Called PADDINGTON, in black and white line drawings, in 1958, and worked on the next eight PADDINGTON books.
Her illustrations made the idea of a bear from Peru arriving at PADDINGTON station with a suitcase and being adopted by an ordinary family seem perfectly reasonable.
Following the wonderfully popular 60th anniversary Bear, Steiff are delighted to offer this deliciously scrumptious teenie weenie Paddington only 12 cm tall, but ginormous in character.
With a red ribbon attached he can become your constant companion wherever you may be.
He is exclusive to the UK, Ireland and USA and is made in a limited edition of 1,958 pieces.
White label with famous Steiff gold plated button in the ear.
