(1908) Bing. Rattle

Here is a lovely 14 inch Bing, he dates from 1908 with boot button eyes. His ears are sewn into the side of his head, that helps date him. He has very long arms and typical Bing ankles. He has a tilt large growler inside but this is not working, at one time I thought it could be a small water bottle inside but I am not brave enough to undo him. The metal frame goes from right across his collar bone to his hips. Perhaps a baby's rattle bear? He is stuffed with wood wool. He has very long arms, his card paws have been replaced as have his arm pads. He has a patch to his left pad. All his joints work well. On his back there is some good mohair and although he is bald in places there are no holes. He wears a wonderful lined jacket. He has what is left of 4 claws on each paw
