Vec Hec is a very rare Hecla. She has a good covering of mohair and a pronounced snout with cinnamon stitching. Her ears are set wide apart. Her mohair is  in excellent condition for someone of 112 years old. She has a hump back and very long arms, and her glass eyes have painted backing on them. 

 She is mohair, stuffed with woodwool, with felt paws. Her paws and feet all have original stitching on them (claws).
Her joints all swivel nicely. she has an adorable face. 
This company began making bears to be Americas answer to the successful German Steiff bear. The company made their bears to be almost identical to Steiff bears, they even imported the mohair from Germany! Yet, the company did not advertise much and was out of business in two years. These adorable and handsome bears are very hard to find!
