For sale is a wonderful, and I believe rare antique, large size gold mohair articulated humpback teddy bear, possibly a Steiff, although I cannot verify this, as there is no button in its ear. I found it at an antique mall in Ogden, Utah, but it originally came from an estate in Pennsylvania. What makes this bear even more special is that it is a "growler", and makes a sort of growling sound when it is moved. This great old bear is stuffed with either straw or excelsior, has glass eyes, and embroidered nose and mouth, as well as paw and feet details. It has salmon colored felt paws and feet pads. It measures 26" tall, 13" paw to paw, and 8" from its muzzle to the back of its head. It is in nice condition, with just some darkening due to age on the mohair, but no holes, rips, or stains. There is also little wear to the mohair, and the head, arms, and legs articulate well. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a great addition to your teddy bear or vintage/antique stuffed animal collection!
