Mr Lost & Found Bear
This bear has been recently acquired from being passed down in the family
I am unsure of the bears make, or of its age. I am just wondering if you would know the make, or how much it is worth or if you could tell me anything about it
On its left foot, it has a square mark on the foot, see photos but the label has faded away so I cannot read it, it looks like it would have had blue writing?
The bear has glass eyes and a cotton nose. The glass eyes are in good condition but the nose seams to have been worn a lot.
I know nothing about the bear, all I have been told is that the family believe it to be valuable but I know this often is not the case as with many family items past down
The Bear has pads on both its feet as well as its hands, these are a dark brown colour and are showing wear, losing its original colour. The Bear looks like it has been used lots and lots over the years - as many bears have been but the fur mostly seams in good condition. When the bear is shaken, there is some thing that moved around inside which is hard to describe. It is not like it is broken and something is loose, but it makes a sound that i believe it should make. All the limbs on this bear seam to be in good move able condition and none seam to have ever come away from the bear. All 5 moving pieces, arms, legs and head, all move and spin around with ease
There is a tiny little opening on the seam of the bear - on its back up by the neck, which looks like it could easily be repaired but I think it might be better to leave it in its original state. The bottom of the bear has had the fur worn away, which i am guessing is due to lots of use over the years. The only other damage I can spot on this item is on its right foot pad, this has a few little holes which i have pictured, so please take a look
The bear measures 16 inches tall
If there is any other information that you need me to tell you, please ask, but I have described this bear as best I could
Look Forward to hearing from you
