I bought this toy from a thrift store without the base it currently is sitting on. I have researched 30 hours in total and if not found a single similar image or example of a similar
toy. From the colors used for painting the toy (looks to be sporting a tartan plaid scarfe..(a Scottish bear vacationing in the Alps??? Missing a kilt though)-An orthoPedic shoe on the bear's feet ring a bell with Birkenstock sandals as we know them here in the US leading me to think Germany as a I suppose that is possible for this to be a one-of-a-kind handmade children's toy. Not including the base it is sitting on , the toy weighs 3 pounds 2 ounces. Considering the bear's size and it's heft..my best guess is that it was constructed from 12 guage sheet steel It's a very nice action /skiiing. balance-toy and it brings out the comments from every person who sees it. Any help in identifying this toy is greatly appreciated.
