Where is it - the spirit of Christmas? With Artan we present a wise messenger, whose friendly, thoughtful look reminds us: "You yourself have to spread the magic, you yourself must carry peace unto the world!" Artan means "little bear" in Irish. His collar, made from dark olive green silk with hand embroidered decoration points to the Emerald Isle of the Fairies; also attached to the collar are little bells in patina finish which emit a gentle ring. Nose, paws and inner ears are colour-matched to the bells. With his slightly pointed elflike ears you wonder whether Artan is a bear or a Christmas elf? In any case he is enigmatic: as mysterious as the festival which we fill with new life every year. Artan Teddy bear (Artan meaning 'little bear' in Irish) has a brown coloured backing and long pile, grey coloured finest mohair. He has a shaven back muzzle with two glass eyes and a sttiched nose. He is 5-way jointed and surface washable.Limited edition of 1,225 pieces - complete with Steiff Gift box and numbered certificate. With gold-plated "Button in Ear"
