Here is a lovely and exceedingly rare to find free standing German vintage teddy bear, made by Petz aka Anton Kiesewetter, a famous German toy manufacturer, founded in 1859. This bear has its identification mark, a milk glass button on its chest saying “Petz” and was produced from 1947 into the 1950s. Bear has a working growler in his belly!
Our beautiful old brass yellow mohair teddy bear here is in very good to excellent condition! Only on the back is a small spot where bear lost some mohair. The inset muzzle and top of the feet are made of off-white wool plush.
The glass eyes and ears are originally glued in, another identification mark of the early Petz bear -they wanted to make their bears as safe as they possibly could!
The felt pads are all original and nearly flawless, with a small repair on the left foot, some seam was stitched anew, to be seen in the photographs. The nose, moth, and claw stitches are all original, with one claw stitch on the left foot being lose.
Vintage German Petz teddy here measures 40 cm / 16 inches tall overall and can stand perfectly by his own.
Bear is fully disk jointed and the joints are all fine, but not as firm as in the bears youth! Old yellow Petz teddy bear is very firmly stuffed with wood wool (excelsior).
