Lovely and 'well loved' vintage teddy bear

He is a very old 24" tall kapok filled Big Ted.
He has a musical box in his back which no longer works and doesn't have a key. The music box is Swiss made by Gueissaz.
He has lots of wear and tear as only a well loved bear can.
He has the longer snout of the old bears and glass eyes. He did come with a tartan cap but I am not sure that it is original so have removed it. The nearest looking bear on the internet I can find is a Bing bear.?

Hi
I'm afraid I am unable to say whether or not the music box can be fixed or not. I am also unable to give a value. Only a auction house who specialise in toys may be able to help here.
I would say though that very few bears have a high value.

Not much to go on
by: Polly

Hi, he was handed into the hospice shop by an elderly lady, so I'm afraid we don't have much to go on. I was wondering if the music box could be fixed? if it could be fixed would it be worth it value wise? Do other bears have this type of music box in them? Thanks for looking.

Need more details

Hi
There isn't much to go on here. Without a label and dates location etc a lot of bears look alike.

Yes it may be a Bing bear, he does have a lot of the characteristics.

Swiss musical boxes do originate from the 1930's, so this may give you indication of how old the bear is.

Perhaps if you could post on this page with more details i.e where did you get him from then perhaps someone else will be able to identify him.
Thank you for posting.
