Antique Vtg Lovely Chiltern Panda Bear " Benny" 1950s Tlc ? For Sale
Benny is a lovely Chiltern panda bear made in the early 1950s. His black mohair has faired better than the white and he is over all a tufty little chap. He has an injury to his left arm (see pic 11) the side of the joint that should be inside his body is visible and somehow, and I am not entirely sure how, it is still attached and articulates?! His remaining joints are loose but he can still sit unaided and poses nicely. He has all of his original features, these include his claw stitching, nose and mouth stitching and his glass eyes. His eyes have been secured for him as they were very loose and he has a tear in the felt piece behind his right eye (see pic 10). His velveteen pads although marked in places are in good condition and you can clearly see where his Chiltern label would have been on his right foot pad. He has a wood wool filled head, a kapok stuffed body and measures 14 inches long. His kapok stuffing has settled giving him a very squidgy feel and he definitely sits with a bit of a lean to his right. In all Benny is a wonderful, sweet bear . He is a loved ted and won't be for collectors of perfect bears, but if you like cuddly characters then you will love him. You could always give him some TLC, but he is more than happy as he is. If you have any questions I am always happy to answer them. He will be sent by recorded delivery.
