Rupert — By Steiff

We were absolutely delighted that after years of waiting we had Limited Editions of Rupert Bear and friends by Steiff of Germany — The world famous and most prestigious bear manufacturer. The edition sizes did vary.  From 3000 for the white Rupert, to 1500 for Edward Trunk and Algy pug and 1973 for the brown Rupert that was launched in July 2008 and 1500 for Podgy Pig launched April 2009. These editions were and still are superb in every respect and are fantastic for Rupert or Steiff collectors alike.  The attention to detail is second to none with these editions and they have already increased in value. The last issue, in this collection, was Bill Badger as detailed below.  White Rupert, Bill Badger and Podgy Pig have all sold out here.  Those that are now offered for sale are editions we have bought back in from Collectors wishing to sell them on. We took extra stock to extend the availability of the lines, when they were in production, of Brown Rupert, Algy Pug and Edward Trunk. A small handful of these are to be found in the Special Offer section,  for a limited time only.  So grab a bargain whilst you still can!

We saw the first four plush Rupert and other character bears released only just in time for Christmas 2008. Now no longer being produced by Steiff, stock is very low on all counts.

Finally, we had a Rupert Christmas Ornament, that was released in November 2008 and another Christmas ornament for 2010.  Again stock is limited on these lines.

Sadly Margarete Steiff have come to the end of producing Rupert. Hopefully in the future they will return and make another special Rupert bear for us. Fingers crossed!

 

Please Note - All Uk and Europe postage charges will have VAT added, in line with the new VAT rules.

This is added automatically as the order is processed securely.

Steiff Rupert Bear — Limited Edition of 1973

Brown Rupert! One Only

 

SOLD

Alfred Bestall always drew a brown Rupert on the cover of his annual, and did so until 1973.  The cover submitted by him for this annual did feature a brown Rupert, until someone changed him to white! What a mistake that was. The error caused the world of Rupert Bear to lose it's most celebrated illustrator, and this event has been talked about ever since.  A handful of annuals were eventually correctly printed and given to Alfred Bestall, and those that still exist have been changing hands at auctions over the past few years.  Two were sold last year and realised in excess of £20,000 each!

This fantastic version of Rupert Bear by Steiff has been made, in a way, to commemorate this event.  Limited to an edition size of 1973, the year of the error, this version is set to be one of the most collectable Rupert limited editions ever.

We are lucky enough to have been offered back this bear to resell. It is in  mint condition, and comes together with box and limited edition certificate.

Delivery will be made by Royal Mail Special Delivery. The charges are £8.65 UK, £11.06 Europe and £16.92 Rest of the world.

Rupert By Steiff — Open Edition — Woven Fur

RBS732
!

Sorry Now Sold Out

When they are gone - It's finished!

Steiff no longer produce these bears. 

This is a lovely woven edition for Rupert Bear from Margarete Steiff of Germany.  An 'open edition', which is denoted by the yellow label in his ear.  He is 25cm tall and naturally has his Steiff button in his ear.

This bear is made from woven fur, and is stuffed in a way that he is good and firm, unlike the plush bear which is soft and squidgey! He is fully jointed at his arms legs and head, like any high quality teddy bear.  Wearing his trademark clothing he is machine washable if he gets grubby, however, like anyone taking a bath, he needs to be naked!  Clothes may well shrink and he may turn pink from his sweater! Now that would be a sight to behold.
