(1915-20) Cork Filled Sold £60

Pre labels and buttons and made during their experimental period, Cork filled bears would have been produced between 1915 and 1920. Although similar to the Chad Valley bear designs of the 1920s cork filled bears have some wonderful early features. Longer tapering arms, more pronounced muzzle, slimmer ankles and rounder feet with the absence of card inserts. The unusual filling gives bears the most wonderful feel to the touch.
