I was recently given this bear by a friend - it had belonged to his elderly mother who recently passed away. I was helping him to sort out her belongings when this little bear caught my eye. He is just 7 cms tall and his arms legs and head are all jointed, and able to turn 360 degrees.

He has been loved - his fur is rubbed away on his tummy, feet and tops of his ears. Also his nose isn’t as black as it probably once was as the stitching has worn away. His eyes are like two matt black beads. He is solid - there is no stuffing inside him - he is quite hard to the touch. There are no labels on him.


I would love to know more about my little bear, so hope that someone gets in touch.

Schuco bear

Thankyou Maggie, he does have a metal body (or at least I can see he has a metal neck), so I think my mystery is now solved. Though it would be interesting to know how old he is if anyone has any idea?

Schuco!
by: Maggie

It's quite certainly a Schuco bear. They sere quite famous for miniature bears and mechanical bears. You might find it has a metal body. That would also speak for Schuco.

Hi Sarah, thankyou for this - I think mine is just a much loved teddy bear too - and will continue to be so! I’m so grateful for the information I’ve received on here as I didn’t know anything about Schuco bears before.

Schuco bear

He looks like one of my Schuco bears. They weren't all perfume bottles. My three are just much loved teddies! I got my first around 1970/71 - think it came from Hamley's and the last was bought for me at auction.

Glad to be able to help. You will find lots of information on, I have one but mine appear to have been stuck on something and it's very small.

Thankyou Maureen

That’s very interesting, thankyou. My bear does look as if he has a metal neck and it could be a container of some sort, but his head won’t come off! I don’t want to injure him so I’ll research more Schuco bears. Thanks again. Isobel

Hi, your miniature bear appears to be a schuco bear.

I'm not saying pull his head off but some do have a perfume bottle inside.
You probably can check by turning his head carefully
