rubber nose bear

I have an old teddy bear that is about 11 in tall, it has a rubber nose and mouth. It has brown transparent eyes that are black in the middle, the black is on the inside of the eye. Its head arms and legs are poseable. It is a dark reddish brown fur that is very worn, you can see stitching on seams. I cant find any tags or maker marks. Thank you Alan

Rubber nose bear

Gund did produce bears with rubber noses such as the CubbiGund however from the shape of this little guy it would appear to be by Ideal from the 50's.

Possibly A Gund Bear
by: Kate

Hi
I have checked my books and the closest I can find is a 1952 Cubbigund Cuddle Bear which came with a rubber nose and mouth such as yours and similar eyes. (A Gund Bear, made in New York)

However in the 1950's other US manufacturers also started to copy the rubber nose.

Here is a Similar bear for sale on ebay
