Steiff is releasing an incredible and extremely limited edition as part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Steiff Club. This version of Noah’s Ark is only available to Steiff Club members and is limited to only 500. The completed ark will be produced in 4 sets and will include matching numbers and certificates.
This beautiful edition consists of 4 separate sets that combine into the perfect centerpiece for any Steiff Collection. All total, the edition will contain a 24 inch ark, Noah and his wife and 16 animals made of mohair that have come in groups of 2 of course. This stunning edition would make an incredible addition to any Steiff collection.
The first set of the edition includes the ark, Noah and his wife and a pair of pachyderms. The wooden ark is beautifully stained and has a gold-colored Steiff button is attached to the front. The side of the ark has a door for the animals to enter. And that is just the beginning.
The second set of the edition will be a pair of giraffes and a pair of zebras. Both pair of these animals show off the exquisite printed mohair and superb airbrushing techniques of the artisans at Steiff. The male and female versions of the animals are easily recognized as they are differently sized and colored complementary.
Next up is 2 sets of mohair animals including a pair of adorable gorillas accompanied by a pair of tigers. The gorillas have felt faces, paws and ears while the tigers’ delightful stripes are printed. And again, the airbrushing by the Steiff artisans make this set complete.
And finally, your ark will be complete with a set of 6 animals including pairs of lions, camels and crocodiles. Each is beautifully airbrushed to bring them to life.
All in all, this completed edition is absolutely stunning. This Noah’s Ark combines the vision and craftsmanship that Steiff has been know for for over 100 years. Even Steiff’s founder, Margarete Steiff, would be proud to see this spectacular edition.
