Der 26. Sonneberger Museumsbär 2019 ist erschienen !
Jedes Jahr im November stellen wir einen besonderen Teddy vor, den wir unserer alten Heimatstadt Sonneberg und ihrem Spielzeugmuseum widmen. Das Sonneberger Spielzeugmuseum, gegründet 1901, ist das älteste Museum seiner Art und ein Quell deutscher Spielzeuggeschichte. Bereits Ende der 1920er Jahre fing unser Großvater an, einzelne Teddybären und Ausstellungsstücke aus seiner Produktion in die Obhut des Museums zu geben, damit diese für kommende Generationen erhalten bleiben. Dieser Tradition folgend haben wir uns vor 26 Jahren dazu entschlossen, jedes Jahr einen besonderen Teddy herauszugeben, der in seiner Gestaltungsart historisches Spielzeug versinnbildlich. Die Nummer eins dieses Modells ist jeweils für das Museum reserviert.
Teddybaer stuffed with excelsior
Miniature Bears stuffed with excelsior belong to the rarity treasure of the Teddy Bear world and can hardly be found today at the collectors market.
For almost 100 years, we have cultivated the tradition of stuffing our Teddy Bears with excelsior and we have preserved for us this old craftsmanship also for the production of our Miniature Bears. This gives our Miniature Bears their exceptional value and makes them to uncomparable and unique creatures.
Mohair is made from one of nature`s finest sources for natural fiber, the Angora goat. This special fur is very long and naturally wavy. When sheared (this usually occurs twice a year) it is called mohair. The term "mohair" is derived from the Arabian word "Muhayar" which literally means "the fabric of goat hair". Despite the name similarity there is no relation to the Angora rabbit.
The collection of this noble hair does not require any animals to be harmed!
Angora goats are a delicate animal and are very sensitive to temperature change. This requires a dependable mild climate. Summers not so hot that the meadows dry out and winters not too cold. In the entire world there are only three regions that consistently meet these ideal conditions: Texas, USA, South Africa and Turkey.
The fur of the Angora go at is naturally white, curly and shiny. Its fibers have a remarkable strength when made into a pile fabric. These characteristics together with the noble appearance, silky feel and sheen make mohair one of the finest fibers offered by nature.
