I have collected teds for approximately 35 years maybe closer to 45 now. I only bought ones that tugged at my heart. I overlooked the condition altogether for charm & character & boy howdy does this bear have both. He once upon a time had rich golden mohair but now just a few tufts are left.
I would guess he is 98% bald. He may have an early squeeze box inside as it feels like it. One arm & one leg are still jointed but the other 3 joints have been sewn down.
I adore all the mommy mends, one of the main reasons I fell in love with him. He has a fairly long upturned arm & rather big feet for his size. I believe his black, wooden, shoe button eyes are original just like I believe his nose is original too.
Paid way more for his clothes than the bear. Their hand made from antique fabrics! Dusty rose velvet with a satin shirt with lace at the bottom of both arms.
He comes with an old metal drum & one old drumstick, a Halloween horn & a game box with a Teddy bear picture. You get everything except the basket. Thanks a huge bonus too. I hope he touches your heart the way he has melted mine, all these years.
Please look closely at all the pictures and enlarge each as pictures are an important part of my description. What you see is what you get:. Thank you for stopping by and as always may God bless you and yours.
