Bought Two Bears this Weekend...
Pair of old teddy bears
I bought these two antique/vintage teddy bears this weekend, in different antiques malls. I believe both are mohair.
The larger bear measures about 18"-19" and has black, shoe-button type eyes (sewn on). He has a sort-of hump to his back, and his arms and legs move, but his head doesn't seem to move. Excelsior (straw) stuffed.
The smaller bear measures about 14". He has glass eyes, movable arms, legs, and head, and the bottoms of both feet are marked "Germany" (appears to be stamped on in black ink). He also seems to be stuffed with excelsior/straw.
Would love to know what types of bears these are, and approximate dates on them.
Thanks so much!
