My uncle, born in 1934 owned this bear which he called Bruno. Bruno has long, straight, moving limbs attached by wire (poking out on his left army muscle, like a tattoo) He has glass eyes, a growler, fabric foot soles and hand palms, small ears, and a pointy cone-shaped snout. I think his fur is organic, not synthetic. His bald spots look like linen. Nose and mouth are black stitched cotton. He is 16 inches long. The back panel of his head is a v. He has a very flat head profile except for his nose. I think there was a leather brand sewen into the head join of his left ear because something hard and crusty is still there.
