Early English teddy bears are very difficult to identify. There were many early makers who came and went. These early teddy bears looked very much like their German cousins, but because British companies did not label their bears properly during these first years few British bears from this period can be positively identified.

Early English bears usually have:-

Long thin bodies
Thin legs and arms
Little or no stitching apart from nose and mouth
Hard wood wool stuffing

The following bears do not have any labels or buttons.
