Here Steiff congratulate the Royal couple, Queen Elizabeth ll and Prince Philip, on their Platinum wedding – 70 years of a wedding.
The couple secretly engaged in 1946, when Philip asked King George Vl for his daughter’s hand in marriage. The King granted his request providing any formal engagement was delayed until Elizabeth’s 21st birthday and their engagement was officially announced on 9 July 1947.
Princess Elizabeth married Philip Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey London at 11.30 am on 20 November 1947.
So here is a superb Steiff teddy designed to rejoice on this year – their Platinum wedding year. He is made from the finest grey deep mohair and is fully jointed. He has eyes of two colours and an elegantly light orange hand stitched nose and mouth, and he is wearing a specially made necklace of two hearts designing the sign of love.
He has felt paw pads and on one the number ’70’ has been gently been added using Swarovski.
Limited edition of just 1,947 pieces made – Steiff decided on this number as it is the year they were married.
