Rare early American bear by Bruin Manufacturing Co. c 1907 named Adelaide. BMC advertised a "featherweight" line of animals stuffed with kapok and this is likely one of them. Bear measures about 17" . I believe she is all original with boot button eyes, 5 claws, some partial and vertical nose. A good covering of beautiful, very bright apricot mohair but missing a large patch on her bottom , chest and upper right arm. Did you know when some children went to bed with their teddies they would sometimes pick the fur ? I believe Adelaide gave that sort of comfort. Has portion of silk woven BMC label on right foot, original felt pads with professional repairs. What a beautiful bear she is ! Adelaide will arrive wearing her vintage baby cardigan with brooches, thank you and please take care of her.
