Here comes an antique German teddy bear, made in the 1920s, restored and 43 cm / 17 inches tall overall, 33 cm / 13 inches sitting.
Our old teddy bear is made of yellow mohair and lost only very little of it as you can see in the photographs. Bear has back painted glass eyes, is firmly stuffed and has a mute growler in his belly (it rumbles around when bear is moved). The nose, mouth and claw stitches are not original in my opinion, I presume they were made completely anew when bears felt pads were restored by underlining them with silk - a restoration presumably made in the 1960s or 70s. All in all, this old teddy bear is in exceptionally good condition!
Please, do note the extraordinary, big, and round shaped ears of the old bear and the significant humpback.
We do attribute this bear probably having been made by Strunz, a famous German bear manufacturer, basing this assumption not only on our long experience with bears, but also on old catalogue photos and the fact, that the unusual size of 43 cm is linked to this manufacturer.
