Horace is the 1904 Steiff bear of Priscilla Longfellow Thorpe — the granddaughter of 19th century poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Horace was well traveled and rubbed shoulders with some truly famous people of the early 20th century. He even "shook paws" with his namesake, Theodore Roosevelt! Steiff has reproduced Horace as he appears in turn-of-the-century family photographs. His velvet paw pads are an exact reproduction of those that were patched over by a nanny in the 1920s with material from an old velvet cape. Horace is mohair and comes with a book that tells his life story in words and pictures. A North American Limited Edition of 1,500 pieces, it's "new" for 2006. He comes with an embroidered bag and stands 60 cm high.
