More than a thousand Steiff teddy bears go up for auction

A private collection of more than 1000 Steiff teddy bears is being auctioned at Christie's in London, on Wednesday.

The German company Steiff has made soft toys since the late nineteenth century, and is a highly prized brand amongst collectors.

Many of the toys in the collection are expected to raise thousands of pounds for the anonymous seller.

Christie's' teddy bear expert, Daniel Agnew, offers a guided tour of the sale's highlights, including the most expensive and oldest teddy bears in the collection.
