1954 teddy bear
This bear was given to me the day I was born by my grandfather in 1954. He has a music box which is wound by the key that sticks out of his back. The original box played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. This eventually wore out as I believe it had to be re-wound many times each night to put me to sleep.
He is 17"-43cm tall & is very firmly stuffed. He is quite heavy for his size. Paw pads are fabric, not leatheret. His nose has been re embroidered, probably due to the fact I can remember kissing him a lot.His ears seem to be slightly pointed. He has brown glass eyes & is jointed on his arms & legs but not his head
I have included a photo of myself holding him, but I am not sure how old I am in the photo or when it was taken.
I am not really interested in his value as I will never part with him, but would like to know what brand he may be.
Any help appreciated.
