Steevans Bears – Teddy Bear, History, Information

Steevans bears were made starting around 1908 until 1920. Steevans produced mostly bears that had musical chimes inside the body. They were originally labeled with a metal tag inside the ear with the words “Steevans, England” and a serial number embossed in it. These bears are very rare and hard to find. At least two labeled bears have been recorded to date with some other unmarked teddy bears suspected of being Steevans bears. Typical Steevans teddy bears had hard stuffing, black boot button eyes, rose pink mohair, horizontal nose stitching and black stitched claws on the paws and feet.

    “Steevans Manufacturing Co Ltd” was based in Gnosall, Staffordshire, England. It was formed by the partership of
    Mrs Edith Steele (wife of local Doctor) and her brother Algernon Evans – hence the name “Steevans”.
