From original owner who was born around WW1.

Brown bear in near perfect condition with no tags, no dirt or damage of any sort nor any bad smells about 15 inches in length. Eyes look like glass and at least are semi round. Head swivels, limbs are free and no metal frame noticed. Stitching is prominent without fraying. No idea on stuffing or type of material on the outside of this rare looking bear. I write here to get some feedback from those of you in the bear community who know more than I about collecting these cute animals. I am not a collector or a buy/sell person just came across this little bear as a gift from a neighbor, now deceased. She was born around WW1 so bear is likely a 1920s production or earlier. I’d like to sell the bear but I am just not sure of its value know nothing about such animals, stuffed or alive.

50s bear
by: Clarebear

I agree with the previous comment, i collect bears from the early 1900s -20s and this is definitely not from that time period,as if he was he would have been filled with crunchy wood wool(straw) very very long arms, boot button eyes or very rarely hand blown glass eyes, i could go on.
Hes a lovely bear though and dates to around 50s-60s.
If your still not sure do some research on bears from different era's, theres plenty of info available on the net x

nice conditioned, cute knickerbocker

i understand that they were born around that period, however this bear is not from the 20s. :/ they made monochromatic bears back then. my estimate is that it was made in the 50s. sorry, but that’s about the first time they started making bears with a brown body and beige snout, like yours.
