(1915) Eduard Cramer. Ed
Rare Teddy Baby, circa early 1930s. Similar face to Bearkin, but twice as large. Authenticated by Cramer expert Patricia Loncle. 16" tall, Original eyes, mouth and nose stitching--just a few middle stitches missing from nose, Classic Cramer red buttonhole mouth--very vibrant colour. Original cardboard-lined feet--you can see stitching around the feet around the seams; it looks like a bit of repair work, with someone darning up the seams Original paw and foot pads: One paw pad has a replacement insert (nearly the size of a two-pence piece) Original claw/paw stitching all intact Golden mohair--coverage about 30-40% but somehow the mohair loss doesn't detract from his beauty, partly because the fabric backing is the same golden colour. Kapok/woodwool stuffing. The stuffing has shifted so that he slumps a bit, especially around neck.Fully five way jointed. His head is a bit wobbly. Beautiful hump on back Inoperative squeaker He's a rare bear, with huge personality and charm, as you can see from the photos! He's completely display-ready.
