Farnell Type English Teddy Bear Cinnamon Brown Mohair Old Vintage Antique C 1920 For Sale
Fantastic 1920's Farnell type teddy bear with unusual cinnamon brown mohair.This tubby little bear dates from the 1920's and is very much in the style of Farnell bears from that period and although I uncertain of his maker I am pretty sure he is an English bear He is 17" tall, five ways jointed with very unusual cinnamon brown mohair which has taken on a silvery hue as he has aged and he has a very good coverage with only slight thinning and a couple of bare spots, one of which is above his left eye, although it is not too noticeable. He is in overall very good original condition with all his original features intact apart from his replacement eyes which are actually plastic although I did not realise this when I bought him! but I haven't replaced them with more appropriate glass eyes as I think they really suit him and they give him the look of the Early Chad Valley yellow moon eye bears from their 1920's.There are a couple of places where he has had a newer stitch or two, including his right ear and his closing back seam and he has a non working press growler but I think he can be forgiven for this, considering his otherwise lovely condition.His cotton pads are also original and in clean condition with no holes or damage and he has five claw stitches on each foot but none on his paws. He is a lovely bear in profile with a long bare muzzle, a slight hump and a tubby round tummy. He is quite rare with this unusual coloured mohair and would make a wonderful addition to any hug of early bears. He is being offered with a very low starting price and to the highest - special delivery including insurance - £9.95 Europe - International signed for post including insurance - £15.25 US, Canada, Australia, Japan - International signed for post including insurance - £18.95
