This distressed teddy was bought from an old collector who preferred not to have it restored. It did suffer some repairs along the way, I think, as his eyes are made of buttons. He is made of what seems to be gold colored mohair and cotton (paws), and he is filled with excelsior( thin wood shavings). He is quite tall at 57 cm, heavy at 1.3 kg/3 lbs, and is fully jointed. Head spins 360 degrees, but not like in the Exorcist. He is too sweet to be scary. He has a funny hump and his growler is no longer in working condition. I can hear it rattling when teddy is shaken.
He still has the round metal tag in his left ear, marked with ‘FADAP’.
I would like to know how old he is and how much could I sell it for to someone who could restore him and make him enjoy his life again.
