A very rare early American mohair bear by Bruin Manufacturing Company, circa 1906-1907. He has dark glass eyes, dark brown nose and claw stitching, and replaced felt paw pads. The light beige short mohair has thinning overall but he retains about 60-70%. He has great form and the stuffing is mostly firm. (A very handsome early mohair bear!)
See Ken Yenke's Volume 11 Teddy Bear Treasury for a picture of an American Bruin, bottom of page 18.
He is available on layaway with $160. down and monthly payments. Please let me know before purchasing if you choose this option.
