Here is a very curious and sweet vintage polar bear teddy with transparent glass eyes, made in the 1950s, very likely in Sonneberg, GDR, the then existing Easter German state.
Our 42 cm / 16 ½ inches tall teddy bear is made of the palest yellow, nearly white wool plush, so that I think it justified to refer to him as a polar bear. Old teddy bear is fife way jointed, and very firmly stuffed. Muzzle, inner ears, paws, and feet are inset and made of white plush. Nose and mouth embroidery are original.
The old polar bear has a very curious shape, the neck is overly long beneath a nice round head, and the rest of the bear appears pleasantly chubby. Bear comes with a fancy off-white shawl; I presume he intends to cover his neck this way.
An old voice box rattles in bears belly but does not give any growl.

As you van see in the photographs the old bear is in played with, good vintage condition.

*Please, do be aware that the listing is for the old polar bear with his muffler ONLY, none of the decorations you see in the photos will come with the old bear.

*Please notice: This vintage polar teddy bear belongs not into the hands of children; it may not fulfill the safety standards for toys in our time! So, it is not a children’s toy, though an adult collector’s & vintage toy lover’s item for decoration & display only!
