Here is a large German vintage mohair teddy bear, made in the 1950s or early 1960s by ‘Bernhard Hermann Teddy’ in Hirschaid. Bear is one of the famous ‘Type 61’ bears, made in the old fashioned so called ‘Sonneberger pattern’. Hermann Teddy bears are quite rare now, especially in such good condition! Large vintage bear would make a fine companion for your darling doll or love to be with other bears in a collection!

Our vintage Hermann teddy bear here is large, measuring 50 cm / 19 ¾ inches tall over all and 38 cm / 15 inches sitting. Vintage teddy bear is firmly stuffed with wood wool (excelsior), made of finest grey mohair (in fact this colour is called “champagne” when used for teddy bears), with inset short mohair muzzle, embroidered nose and 3 claws, amber glass eyes and felt pads. Small holes in both foot pads were underlined with new felt by me, observe all photos please! Bears five disk joints are perfectly working, but not as firm as in the old bear’s youth. The vintage Paddington muffler was given him by a former owner, and old Hermann would not part with it.
Amazingly, the growler in old Hermann bears belly still works!
This charming old Hermann teddy bear is very clean and in very good condition!

Please, do be aware that this listing is for the old Hermann Teddy bear ONLY! All other items you may see in the photographs will NOT come with the vintage teddy bear!
