On 14 April 1912 the passenger liner Titanic was speeding towards New York on her maiden transatlantic voyage when, shortly before midnight, she struck an iceberg off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, Canada. Water began pouring in immediately, and in less than three hours the luxury liner had sunk. The sinking of the Titanic was one of the worst shipping tragedies of all time. 1, 513 people lost their lives. When news of the catastrophe reached England the whole country was plunged into mourning. Steiff responded by producing black mohair bears to mourn the disaster. Clearly touching a chord, they sold out quickly. Ian Pout, owner of Teddy Bears of Witney, bought one of these remaining original bears at Phillip´s, London in October 1990 - "Othello" is his name.
