Chad Valley bear

Hi. I have a Chad Valley bear. I think it belonged to my Aunt who would now be around 100 years old. I have had it as long as I can remember and I am almost 72. The bear has a stud in its ear and the Chad Valley label on its foot. It has a growler but this doesn’t work. He’s got a long snout and no longer has what I presume would be glass eyes. Not in brilliant condition but just curious to know more about him.

I also have a smaller bear stuffed with straw but damaged to one side of his head. I can’t see any makers name on this one I think this also belonged to an aunt. They are sat in a very old wicker cradle which I assume also dates to maybe the early 1900s.

Hope you can shed some light on them. They are probably only worth sentimental value but I’m sure you’ll be able to tell me.

Thank you.
