TEDDY BEARS' PICKNICK artist bears home

Die aus dem Koffer

The history of the teddy bear begins in Germany. Over 100 years ago it was Richard Steiff who invented the teddy bear and even today many bear artists live in Germany.

I am happy to introduce one of them to you. Susanne Täuber is a telented young lady who makes bears under the name of 'Die aus dem Koffer' (Those out of the trunk). Especially for Teddy Bears Picknick she designed some lovely teds who come with very nice antique accessories.

Please note these bears have been especially created for collectors and are not suitable as a toy for children


Anton is playing in the garden with the wooden pond yacht he borrowed from his nephew Heinz. The grass is the big blue sea and the plants around form mysterious shores full of the unknown.

Anton is a large (46 cm, 18") one of a kind bear by Susanne of Die aus dem Koffer. Up to now we only had small ones made by her. With Anton she did a very nice job. He looks as if he has just been taken from a dusty attic where he has been lying around for years. He wears his old worn grandad's T-shirt with light blue sailor's collar. He comes with his own 'Hohner' mouth organ.

Anton is a one of a kind bear made of short pile dark honey mohair. He has black real shoebutton eyes and a black embroidered nose and claws. He is filled with excelsior and weighted with pellets. His paws are made of light beige cotton. His snout and ears have some paint brushed details.

He is so nice with his sweet face that you must hug him from time to time.

Anton has found a new home.

Her antique children's bag is a very good place to hide in for Millie but she likes to pop out when no one is around.
