      Manikin will stop by before long. Be prepared to answer questions because you didn't provide any information, only a picture. Manikin is the resident authority on such things. She will strip search them and figure them out if anyone can. She tends to have a thing about ears and the back of necks so be prepared.

      all i can say about : 21 inch , plastic eyes and staffed with foam rubber chips.

      Your Bear is likely a carnival prize type or store bought dating from 1960's, when plastic foam (a shredded, sponge-like foam) was most popular, as it allowed for teddies to be wholly synthetic and machine washable. Polyester wadding was used from the 1970's until the present time. He also has synthetic fur . I believe he lost a plastic nose . If your going to collect teddy bears because you love them all he will add to your collection but has no real value . I always say if your going to collect something buy one very good one vs quantity . Look for Mohair, shoe button eyes and jointed limbs . Be careful as many repro's of vintage bears have been made . Your bears maker would at one time maybe had a tag sewn on side , many US companies did not always tag them as to maker . He is not a high quality bear so knowing makers name would not help in dating or value . He also has been washed . Good luck on your start of a collection . fhr helped by asking what I would have :-)

      it looks like a starfish!

      :-) ho2cultcha no it is a bear cut all in one piece instead of separate arms legs ect . It was a quick cheap way to push them out fast . If he had his plastic or rubber nose he would look more like a bear .

      Thank you very much for your comment and advice Manikin. I bought this one for 2£.i really admire your knowledge.

      No value Manikin! That's teddy bear abuse! At least cover his ears before you say things like that. I am sure you meant to say no monetary value. :-) William.

      Gracay your correct I meant monetary :-) thank you for clarifying that :-)
