Purchased this lovely at an estate sale. I am pretty sure it is an early Steiff. There is no ear button or tag, and no chest tag. Measures approx. 24" tall. Has broken growler on inside. Disc jointed. Original pads underneath a pinkish felt (covered by newer felt as seen). Mohair, seems to be excelsior stuffed (feels crunchy kind of like straw). Glass eyes. Some threads at center of chest (may be where chest tag was?). Please see photos. Any info would be a great help! Thanks bear lovers! I couldn't get it to put the pictures here, so below are links to photos in dropbox.
