Teddy Bears stuffed with excelsior - a true treasure
Teddy Bears stuffed with excelsior belong to the rarity treasure of the TeddyBear world and are only rarely offered on the collector's market today. Whatused to be the daily work of the Teddy Bear makers in former times, has becomea valuable and rare treasure today. Worldwide there are only a handful ofexperts who are still familiar with the traditonal art of excelsior stuffing.Years of training, muscle strength and an artistic sense for styling arenecessary to carry out this very time-consuming work. Only very old andlong-standing manufactures have still the knowledge today, how Teddy Bearscan be stuffed with excelsior according to old example, so that nowadaysexcelsior stuffed Teddy Bears are hardly to find.
For more than 100 years, we have cultivated the tradition of stuffing ourTeddy Bears with excelsior and we have preserved for us this knowledge untilltoday. This gives our Teddy Bears their exceptional value and makes themto uncomparable and unique creatures with value-preserving character.
The Classic HERMANN Bear with inserted snout
The "Bear with inserted snout" is a type of model developed by Max Hermannin the 1920s. For this model, the snout consists of a shorter-pile plushthan the bear itself. It is cut separately and sewn onto the bear's headpart. With this model variant, Max Hermann's Teddy Bears became known andfamous. Like hardly any other bear design, the "Bear with the inserted snout"is linked to the name HERMANN and has written history. Still today this designis the preferred Teddy Bear model in our company.
