(1915-20) External metal joints
Pre labels and buttons and made during their experimental period, these bears would have been produced between 1915 and 1920. Although similar to the Chad Valley bear designs of the 1920s the joints are external. Although there were Chad bears with external jointing, I'm not convinced this is one of them. He has a front final seam which I've never seen on a Chad. Does anyone have one? I'd love a different photo. This photo is to give an example to show external jointing.
