Hello: I have a bear that is very old. It came from my grandfather, who would have been over 100 y.o. now, though it may have been my father's (he is 75 y.o.). It has movable arms, legs and head and has a red ribbon around its neck. The eyes are plastic, I think (black center but lighter orange around the pupil) and it has a sewn nose and mouth. It appears to be mohair. The pads of its paws may have been velvet though they are worn now. There is something on the back of its head that may have been a tag but otherwise there is no indication of a tag, logo or other markings. The bow around its neck is interesting - small bow in front and larger bow in back (both red). I am not sure what it is stuffed with but the stuffing is all intact. There is a tongue shaped seam on its back which is covered and not meant to be exposed. let me know if you need additional information!

Hi
if the eyes are plastic then the bear probably is only as old as the 1950's when toy manufacturers moved from glass eyes to plastic ones.
