Early, Primitive Handmade 16" Velvet Bear, Dressed. Made up in a black velvet plush that was used for coats in the Victorian-Edwardian era. Bear is soft stuffed and very charming with his pot belly, tiny ears and button eyes. He is 16 inches long and is jointed. Am dating bear to the late 20's or 30's. He is dressed in his original, homemade blue cotton vest, pants and red floral collar. In very good condition, smells fine, joints a bit loose. Bear was purchased over 30 years ago out of an old farm estate in NW Ohio. Love him !
