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 was produced before 1947; we can tell because from 1947 on Petz bears and toys have a white milk glass button on the chest and our bear never had this identification mark.

Our beautiful old brass yellow cotton plush teddy bear here was well - loved in his time, he lost a bit plush, his nose stitches were cuddled away, the smiling mouth was fixed by me with the original remaining stitch on the right side, the left side and middle stitch are without restoration, all original and perfectly shabby - chic!
The back painted glass eyes 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 linen pads are all original, with small holes as to bee seen in the photographs. Also, the left cardboard sole inside the linen pad has a bit of a kink, but the bear still can stand alone with a bit of balancing. I repaired a small hole on the nape of bears neck and there is an old repair on the back seam. The growler sitting in the old teddy bears belly sadly is mute.

Vintage German Petz teddy here measures 40 cm / 16 inches tall over all.
Bear is fully disk jointed and the joints are all fine! Old teddy bear is very firmly stuffed with wood wool (excelsior).
