What an unusual old bear this is! Have you ever seen one with ears so big? What charm and presence!
I wish I knew who made him, but unfortunately I don’t. He appears to be an early one, though. He feels like he’s stuffed with kapok, not straw, as he is soft and cuddly. Perhaps all of those cuddles over the years contributed to his loss of fur, as he certainly has lost a significant amount of mohair. In fact, his back is nearly bare. Please see pictures for details. The fur that remains is long and silky and probably was white or champagne when he was new. He has shoe button eyes and a light tan floss nose and mouth stitched over what appears to be a black felt underlayment. He has what I believe are his original felt paws and feet, although there are holes in them. He is wearing an old silk ribbon. Only 10 inches tall, he is the perfect size for a holiday display, perhaps in a group of other old bears or in the lap of a large antique doll. Despite his flaws, he is still sweet and full of life and is looking for a new home for the holidays. To help him find that home, he is listed with a low opening bid and no reserve. Please be sure to look at all the pictures for more detail regarding his condition.
If you like sweet old imperfect teddies, please take a look at my other listings for two others that I have for sale.
