A fabulous very early Farnell teddy with champagne white mohair and boot button eyes. He has a black stitched nose and 4 claws on each paw. The mohair retention is excellent, and the fur is very lustrous and soft. Dating back to 1909 or earlier, this wonderful bear has a hump back and great early form. He is about 12" tall. The felt foot pads are original and in excellent condition. The felt paw pads are also original; there is a repair to the left one, and the right one has some small nibbles, too small to patch. (see photos).
All in all, this early Farnell is in wonderful condition.
According to Wikipedia:
John Kirby Farnell or J. K. Farnell was a London company which manufactured the first British teddy bear in 1906.
