Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Margarete Steiff’s passing and in anticipation of the company’s 140th year in business, we are pleased to present a breathtaking white elephant made of paper plush. This simply incomparable collectible is the latest addition to the “Margarete Steiff” series designed to showcase the best of Steiff. Great care has been taken to ensure that each aspect of this special black label edition is deluxe in every way. In addition to its distinctive paper “fur,” the elephant features individually lathed wooden wheels that have been hand-printed cream; stainless steel hubcaps etched with the early “Fabrik Marke” elephant logo; black, hand-blown glass eyes with metallic silver rims; sterling silver tusks created by a renowned German jeweler, and a nickel-plated frame. Round-shaped packaging, the first in the entire history of Margarete Steiff editions, has been created to complement the circular shape of the wheels of the elephant. Each paper pachyderm is finished with the special Margarete Steiff signature button that is reserved exclusively for the series. Produced in an edition of only 139 pieces, the paper elephant will be made available via lottery to Club members only.
NOT A TOY. Intended for adult collectors.
