Hi everyone,
A new member to my bear collection.
I love this ones stance.
He maybe Black Forest but could be Japanese. Although Japanese bears are often depicted holding fish they often seem to have very thin pointed feet like this.
Either way he's a lovely addition to the family.

    Thank you for the loves and comments everyone. Hi Scott, it maybe Black Forest, that's what it was sold as, but, if you Google Japanese vintage carved wood bear your'll see why I'm sceptical, they have a certain look with these pointed thin feet, the Black Forest ones are usually fatter and often have painted claws.

    Hi billretirecoll, could be a cub :) ho2cultcha, I agree, I think it's an Ainu bear. They have a particular look, like this, some are very 'choppy' stylised, I love them :)
