An early antique mohair Ideal American bear, 15.5" tall, with a desirable cinnamon color and thick lustrous mohair. He has black boot button eyes, a black stitched nose and mouth, and original beige felt pawpaws with no holes or damage. Dating to about 1907, this is a rare, early, and beautiful bear in excellent condition, by the famous Ideal Company. He retains good form and mostly firm stuffing.
He is available on lay away with $300. down and monthly payments. If you choose this option, please let me know before purchasing.
