Steiff The Charleston Bear EAN 682391 Description
Steiff brings back the Roaring 20s with their 12 inch Charleston Bear, based on the dance craze of the era which spread from the U.S. around the world. The writer of the famous Charleston song said he first was inspired to write the hit when he heard Charleston, South Carolina dock workers singing. Steiff was inspired by fashions of the flappers of the period, with their distinctive headpieces, fringed dresses, and dancing shoes. Steiff's Charleston Teddy wears a sequined headband of gold accented with a golden yellow feather. Naturally, this bear is musical - wind her up and she plays a few bars of the Charleston song. Made of wavy white mohair, the Charleston Teddy bear is sure to sing its way into a place in your collection. Commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Charleston's rise to popularity. A 2013 North American edition.
