Margarete Steiff, a seamstress who in 1880 began making stuffed animals in Giengan German. Her first designs were given to friends or sold as pincushions.
She is adorned with an antique collar (circa 1880). Her glasses are resting on her leg but could easily be worn. The pincushion features a traditional coloured bear head on a bear tapestry base.
A lovely pair. <3
