Unknown Teddy Bear
two tone teddy bear
I found this teddy in a charity shop and he stood out from the rest so I hope we can identify him somehow by my description.
His fur is quite rough feeling and has a stitched nose that has worn away. His limbs are heavy compared to modern teddies and when squeezed they crack.
His head feels quite solid and has the same cracking sound when pressed. For some reason he has a small hole in the top of his head , managing to get some stuffing out that has a consistency of hay/straw and the eyes are glass.
Coloration of fur is milk chocolate brown with dark brown accents on his ears, paws and feet.
He unfortunately didn't have a tag anywhere on him but would like to have some idea of age and what brand he could possibly be. Either way he is still cute in my eyes. I can take better photos if requested.
Well he looks like a modern bear. I.e he looks like he has synthetic fur and his design is very modern i.e post 1960's. But you say he has glass eyes and is stuffed with straw or wood wool which is unusual for modern bears. Are you sure that he stuffed with a straw like material rather than a foam? I have a old foam filled 1960's bear and he too cracks and feels heavy.
In fact the whole look of the bear is quite modern and his fur doesn't look that old. Short arms and legs which are quite stumpy with flat paw ends. This is often a style of bear that is made for the mass market and perhaps designed for small children and babies.
Personally I haven’t seen another bear like him so I cannot say what manufacturer made him, sorry.
