1960's teddy bear

I was given this bear by my grandparents for my 5th birthday in 1960 and has spent most of his life hidden away in my wardrobe.He was bought from Redgates toyshop in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England. He is 64 centimeters tall and in very good condition as I never played with him as a child, as I felt he was too big and heavy! He is straw filled and very firm and sturdy, fully jointed with blonde plush fur ( shorter fur on his nose and paw pads) He has Amber coloured glass eyes and black stitching for his nose and mouth in perfect condition.. He has a growl which he only uses when the mood takes him!
