Old bear with music box in belly

by Sarah
(Australia )

Hi there, My name is Sarah and I was just writing in hope's that you could please help me identify my old bear that was passed down after my grandfather died. He's in great condition and has a working music box that plays a beautiful song when you push on it's belly, He's 40cm in height, Sandy brown coloured fur, Brown paw pads, Black stitching for claws and for heart shaped nose, Orange and Black eyes and Movable appendages. There is no trace of any label's, Buttons or tag's at all for identification. I'm hoping to sell him to someone that has experience in caring for/storing antique bears as I love him dearly but I have a small child and a puppy and I'm so worried that he'll be damaged that he's spent year's wrapped up in the back of a cupboard.. I've scoured hundreds of site's and although I found plenty of similar looking bears made by Steiff they all had small differences in the paws, Nose, Eyes or no music box so I'd really greatly appreciate any help at all!

chiltern hugmee from the 40s

this is a chiltern hugmee from the 40s, i instantly could tell because they shortened the noses on their hugmee bears after ww2, and the nose and face shape matches.
