This Timeless Classic Teddy is a true Hermann classic in every way. he is five-way jointed, mohair and stuffed with excelsior.
He has an unforgettable face with a hand-stitched nose, sculpted muzzle and the most friendly eyes.
A beautiful stain bow tied around his neck is a finishing touch!
Words from Martin Hermann.
“Our timeless classics are based on a Teddy design, which was developed by our grandfather, Max Hermann, in the late 1920s to lead out his then still young company from the global economic crisis with new, creative ideas. It was a then new Teddy creation, the ‘Teddy Bear with inserted snout’. In this design, the bear snout is made of a short-pile mohair. The snout is cut separately and sewn on to the head of the bear.
Later, our 1920 established company became known and famous for this kind of design. Even today — almost 100 years later — this Teddy bear style is the preferred bear in our house.
Like no other design, the ‘Teddy Bear with inserted snout’ is associated with our name and has wrote history as a ‘Timeless HERMANN Classic’ with which already our parents and grandparents grew up.”
“Handmade in Coburg, Germany our timeless classics are traditionally stuffed with excelsior. Teddys stuffed with excelsior today are the most rare treasures of the Teddy bear world and are barely offered on the market. What once belonged to the daily crafts of Bear makers has become art. Only very old and traditional companies still master today the very time-consuming work of excelsior stuffing.
When stuffing with excelsior, the final and expressive shape of a Bear is individually modeled by muscle power, but also by a lot of sensitivity and an artistic understanding of design.
For almost 100 years we maintain the tradition of excelsior stuffing and we have preserved for us this old craftsmanship for making nearly all of our Teddy Bears.
This makes the Teddy Bears of our company to unique creatures and to real collectibles which are second to none.”
