Our talisman

I have a 18cm tall bear, approximately 105 years old, mohair with felt pads, a squeak and glass eyes.

He was given to my daughter on her first Christmas- 15 yrs ago now.
He is a twin of one of the bears on your front picture.
Mouth open, lighter bib to the chest.
He is articulated and has barely been touched by the look of him, he's near perfect.
My old neighbour refered to him as her talisman, she lived through the second world war in Berlin, was married to a Jewish tailor, yet they still got through the war.
