(1907) Aetna Mr Keely For Sale £495


Mr Keely is in excellent condition with some slumping of his woodwool around his neck, so he has just a bit of that lovely old teddy bear slump when he sits. 

Mohair: Lovely golden colour, about 80-85 percent coverage, with some overall loss and thinning--see photos. He still has great mohair coverage (especially for a 1907 bear!) with a lovely, bright gold gleam.

Eyes: Lovely original shoe button eyes; a couple of very tiny nicks in each eye that don't detract at all and aren't obvious.

Nose/mouth/claw stitching: Original heart-shaped nose stitching, some stitches missing, see photo, but the effect is beautiful. Gorgeous, wistful original smile. Retains all his original claw and paw stitching in the classic Aetna style.

Pads:  Paw pads original, one has a repair with a felt insert. Foot pads look to be replaced.

Fully five-ways jointed; all joints work smoothly and aren't loose or stiff. Woodwool and kapok stuffing.
