I would be really interested to hear from anybody who could identify anything about my bear. As you see she has a very cute face with an unusual shaped stitched nose glass eyes and floppy ears. In fact , more like a dog than bear. She has been part of my family for at least 55 years as I have a photo of her in the same condition as she is now ( patched up) with me at a few months old at my grandparents house. She has large hard (not heavy) feet in a sort of felt material and under her patched up main body it looks to be the same material for the whole body (so not fur). Guessing that she must have always been clothed!? Her filling is hard and crunchy to the touch. No labels visible but I can feel a “ring” at the end of and inside her right ear which has a small sharp point just coming through the fur to the outside. Any ideas on who made her and what year?? THANKS X

American stick bear

Aww she's beautiful. She looks very much like an American stick bear. Her long limbs and her face make me believe this. She would have been made in the 1920's -1930's I don't know of her clothes were added later or weather she came with them. Although at the time,they were cheaply made,she is now worth anything from £50 to £600 or even more depending on her condition. She lovely and I hope you keep her. Thanks for letting me meet her xx
