Jointed Goose Toy Jemima Puddle Duck Old Vintage Antique (teddy Bear/steiff) 20s:
Wonderful and superbly made Jemima Puddleduck Goose toy. Circa Steiff like but probably made by Farnell or another quality English manufacturer.
This wonderful Jemima Puddleduck toy is very similar in construction to the rare and sought after geese toys made by Steiff,
with jointed legs, although this goose also has a jointed head and I think she was probably made by Farnell
or another quality English manufacturer as she is superbly made.Jemima is 10" to the top of her head and is completely wood wool stuffed with white mohair body and an orange felt beak and feet.
She has jointed legs and a jointed head so she can be nicely posed in different positions and her body is well balanced on her legs
so she is able too stand on just her feet or leaning further back so that her tail adds extra support. Jemima is in excellent original
condition with a 99% coverage of her creamy white mohair with just a couple of tiny bare spots. There is a small hole in the left hand
side of her felt beak and a small nibble on one of her feet but apart from this, her felt features are also in very good condition.Jemima's pink paisley shawl is probably original to her and is sewn to her body on her breast and tail and loosely tied
underneath her bottom and it is slightly faded with a small amount of fraying but otherwise in good condition. Her blue denim
style bonnet may be a later replacment as it is not as well made as I would expect and is only lightly tacked on the seams
and is a little bit out of shape now. It is sewn to her neck just under her chin. It may be that both these pieces of clothing
were added at a later date and she was made just as a goose and not as the Beatrix Potter character but I will leave you to
view all the photos (which can be enlarged) and make up your own minds.
