I am looking at the ID Your Bear site and about all I can tell is that it is filled with wood wool ie wood shavings. After 1920 the bear's head was still filled with wood wool but something softer used for the body. The body is softer in places but is mostly hard. The softer places are the joints. That would place it at 1920 but the rest of the bear is a later style. Bears got shorter arms and legs in the 20s and 30s also they lost the hump in their back. Foam rubber is used for a stuffing starting in 1950 so no doubt it is pre 1950. My guess is 1930s.
