Product Information

Steiff Othello Teddy Bear Titanic Replica 1912


Size: 50 cm (20”)

On 14 April 1912 the passenger liner Titanic was speeding towards New York on her maiden transatlantic voyage when, at 11.40pm, she struck an iceberg off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, Canada. Water poured through a 90 metre gash below the waterline, and in less than three hours the liner had sunk. The sinking of the Titanic was one of the worst shipping tragedies of all time. 1,513 people lost their lives. When news of the catastrophe reached England the whole country was plunged into mourning. Steiff responded by producing black mohair bears to mourn the disaster. These were displayed in shop windows throughout London within weeks of the disaster. Clearly touching a chord, they sold out quickly. Only 494 of this prized bear were made and Steiff have made a replica of this very famous bear to commemorate the centenary. 

Steiff’s ‘Othello’ is made from the finest curled black mohair with contrasting cream paw pads. He is fully jointed with head and limbs which are secured loosely to the body to give that Grande old aged appearance. 'Othello' is traditionally stuffed with wood shavings just like the original bear was and he has sparkling glass eyes rimmed red out of sorrow for the tragic loss of life. Limited edition of 1,912 pieces worldwide.

This collector's item is not a toy as defined in the European directive (88/378/EWG/appendix II; from 20.07.2011 (2009/48/EC)) on toy safety.
