Big Teddy Bear
My bear was given to me by my mother.
My mother received him for her 21St birthday in the UK. On 4th June 1965, so he is at least fifty years of age.
I am unable to provide any information regarding where this teddy bear was purchased.
He has no tags or labels.
I'm unsure of the materials. He has two button eyes and thread nose and mouth.
The bottom of the mouth is missing.
He also has had his eyes sewn on at some stage.
He has movable arms, legs and head.
He also growls when turned upside down and back again.
He is a big boy. I've tried to demonstrate how big by placing him onto a dining room chair.
I would love to know the origin of this lovely boy and if he would be considered collectible.
