I recently bought this bear at an auction because I fell in love with him.
He is really quite bald, he still has long mohair fur on his right side arm and both legs, the mohair fur is very pale yellow in the areas that have seen the least light and touch, very fine and silky in texture.
He has long pink felt paw pads on his arms (2" long) and legs (3" long) and 4 "claws" in black stitches on each pad, starting quite high on the fur side and extending only a small amount on to the pad.
The hand stitching to close him after stuffing is on his back under his hump, The hand stitching is about 3" long and very sturdy. I don't know what the name of the stitch, it is, it seems very familiar, possibly similar to the old way of stitching up sacks.
The stuffing has compacted a little with age and his neck is not what it was. I can feel a circular plate at the end of his neck where his head joins, there is another circular plate in his head, this is the point his head rotates around. The same method of joining appears to be used for his arms and legs too,
His arms are long and also quite skinny, with only one jointing seam, his paws curve upwards considerably from his arms, his legs are long too (with one joining
