Old Vintage Antique Deans Rag Book 'mouse Ear' Mohair Teddy Bear. Circa 1930-50 For Sale
Golden mohair Deans 'Mouse Ear' bear standing at 18" tall. Circa 1930's-50's This gorgeous mouse ear bear was made by Deans between the 1930's and 50's and is a rare larger size bear standing at 18" tall. His head is wood wool stuffed and his body is firmly stuffed with kapok and he is five ways jointed and although his joints are a bit loose he is still able to sit up and support himself well.He has a fair covering of his gplden coloured mohair with overall thinning and bare areas but they are fairly evenly spread so he still looks hirsute and I would estimate he has retained about 50-60% coverage. He has retained almost all his original features apart from replacement vintage glass eyes which suit him well. His felt pads are original but they have had extensive darning in the past, particularly on his paw pads, which you can see in the photos. There is also a darned repair on the top opf his head and on the inside of his left leg. He would have had a label sewn onto his right foot and although this is now missing you can still see the stitching where it would have been. Despite his faults and homemade darning, which I think add character and a bit of history, he is a sturdy bear with many years left in him.Deans mouse ear bears were so called because of their large rounded ears sewn high up on the sides of their heads giving them a mouse like appearance and this teddy has a very endearing look. This sweet faced bear is no exception and he will make a lovely addition to some lucky persons hug. This gorgeous bear is being offered with a very low starting price and to the highest buyer.************************ to the UK - Special delivery including tracking and insurance - £7.95 Postage to Europe - International signed for postage including tracking and insurance - £14.95 Postage to the rest of the world- International signed for postage including tracking and insurance - £18.95
