My teddy was given to me at birth - 1960 in Western Australia.
He is about 19" long, is almost bald now, but what fur is left appears to be synthetic?. He has jointed arms and legs and leather/(or possibly vinyl) pads on all paws. He has glass brown/red eyes and stuffed with what appears to be straw. I have only just noticed that there appears to be some sort of box (possibly a voice box) inside in his upper back. His nose is hand stitched, but that may have been since added.
I am in the process of darning his holes with matching cotton at the moment, but would appreciate any feedback on him.
Given his condition, I would assume he is not worth much as he was very well loved.
My email is viviennec@westnet.com.au if anyone can provide info and I am happy to supply photos if requested.
