    Hi, I just purchased this teddy bear at my local thrift store for $1.50
    My research has me to believe this bear to be pre-1914 The head is stuffed with Excelsior, there is a small hole next to one of the ears I can see the excelsior stuffing this bear is a five jointed bear and has a tag on foot that is very faded and hard to read but I believe I see a crown and made in England also there is Nother tag under one arm The two eyes are brown buttons don't know if original or not I believe that fur is mohair The four paws are possibly leather this bear measures approximately 17" tall by 7" wide I would love to know more about this they're like is it pre-1914, Who is the manufacture maker of this bear, is it rare and valuable? Thanks hope you enjoyed reading.

      oops sticky keys Chad Valley made your bear. I Can't read label to date it . Below is how it would be worded by dates , Can you make out what it says
      The company was granted the royal warrant in 1938 after which all bears had a label which read "Toy Makers to Her Majesty the Queen". This changed in 1955 to read "Queen Mother".
      Delete my first comment which has spelling errors ok :-)
      Very nice bear ! I think around 40's if it says Her Majesty
