UPC: 4001505028441 After the dramatic sinking of the “Titanic” in 1912, Steiff produced black Teddy bears for the very first time to reflect the mood of the grieving nation of Great Britain. These “mourning bears” have remained in the memory of many people to this day. This beautiful black bear with its copper-backed, “red-cried” eyes honors the memory of the people aboard the “Titanic”, but also looks to the future with hope as part of the Steiff “Teddies for tomorrow” series.
