SUPERB & RARE EARLY CHILTERN TEDDY BEAR, CIRCA 1920. He's an original bear, and typical of the very earliest of the English Chiltern bears, with his broad shoulders and barrel body, the upturned nose and good quality mohair fur. He dates around 1915/20's.The paws are felt, original glass eyes and he has a clunking grower, but this no longer works. Approx Size:15"( 38 cms). Front final seam. For his age, he's in wonderful condition, only a couple of very minor issues. On his left, the fur is very slightly faded, but doesn't detract. Both ears and a black claw need a stitch or two, and the felt pads have a few very minor holes. The fur is all excellent, he really is in as good a condition as you'd ever find and ever want in an antique teddy bear!
