" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
The Teddy Bear is an enduring symbol for Ralph Lauren.It adorns T shirts,sweaters,ties,sheets…..the list is endless. Some of the popular sweaters much loved by collectors are already featured but here we see it in its simple and pure form. Based on the teddy bear given away with RL fragrances,this version is made entirely of clay and sits approx 3 inches tall. The story goes that Ralph was presented with a Steiff teddy bear complete with RL clothing and this motivated the line. Many of the subsequent designs were created by Dick Tahsin who also designed logos and the RL Barbie doll.
