The Year of the Ox has been created to commemorate the Chinese zodiac year of the ox in 2021.
1985, 1997, 2009, 2021: Those born in the Chinese year of the Ox are considered to be loyal, down-to-earth people. They value quality, their family and their home.
This delightful ox is made from the finest black and white mohair and has airbrushed felt horns and a pink suedette nose.
He is limited to 1,500 pieces, made exclusively for Japanese collectors (but now available at The Bear Garden!) and he comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
