Bear Brand Hosiery promotion stuffed toy in original box. This little 9 inch tall bear was an advertising promotion of the Bear Brand Hosiery Company of Chicago, Illinois circa 1920s. The lithographed bear is 9 inches tall and would have come as a sheet of fabric that could be sewn and stuffed to make the bear. Included is a printout of the original promotion that reads, "`My name is Benny, I'm a little Cloth Bear, I'll come to your house/If you'll just pay the fare.' Send 10[cents] to Bear Brand Hosiery Co., Chicago. Benny Bear will come right away." Included with the stuffed bear are an original Bear Brand Hosiery Box and a pair of their stockings. The box is 6.625 inches wide, 9.75 tall by 3 deep. A rarely found combination of items with the original box, and a delightful piece of advertising history along with a very cute bear. In good vintage condition, age fading, very little wear.
