Farnell/einco Clown Teddy Bear Orange/green Mohair Old Vintage Antique C 1910-20 For Sale
Fantastic and rare 1910-20's clown type teddy bear with unusual orange green and blonde mohair.This is a rare example of an early English clown bear with an orange and green mohair body, blonde mohair head and integral rexine leather booties. He is just under 12" tall with jointed arms and a fixed head and legs, although his legs are seamed where they join his body so he can be made to sit if he has something to lean back against or a larger bears lap to sit on.He is in overall very good original condition with all his original features intact and the only missing bits are the two pom poms which would have been attached to his tummy. He has a very good coverage of his mohair with slight overall thinning and some small bare spots here and there. The green mohair has faded slightly although it is still obviously green but his orange mohair is still very bright. I also think that the blonde mohair on his head may have been tipped or coloured in places as the area inside his ears is a dark, almost black colour and there are also signs of this around his muzzle and on the back of his head. His back painted eyes are also original and the left eye has a slight hairline crack but is still in one piece and the only other damage is a small hole in the seam just under his chin which could be easily closed with one or two stitches but is still stable as it is. I am fairly certain he is an English bear and he has some similarities to the Einco master teddies range or possibly he is a Farnell bear? but whoever he was manufactured by, he is a rare little bear with his coloured mohair and he would make a wonderful addition to any hug, as a companion to your other bears. He is being offered with a very low starting price and to the highest - special delivery including insurance - £6.55 Europe - International signed for post including insurance - £10.95 US, Canada, Australia, Japan - International signed for post including insurance - £13.95
