Antique Dark Brown, 13" Steiff Bear, Folk Art, Chocolatina. More like a cloth doll than a bear, she has no hair. No button because her ears are OLD replacements in Velvet.
She is soft stuffed with early rags added to excelsior. Squeaker gone and felt-lined, bent-nail joints identify her as a Steiff bear.
She measures about 13.4 " or 34 cm. tall.
All of her pads have been replaced with wool felt. Her upper paws were put on backwards so they look like the flippers of a seal !
Chocolatina wears an antique plaid dress now. Am sorry but friend Hecla sold a long time ago.
How cute is she ? !
