(1922) Roly. Showcased by Josie Rockett
Roly is showcased by Josie Rockett.
Roly is a beautiful early ride on or pull toy bear. He is fixed onto a cast iron frame with cast iron wheels. He is made from mohair and his body is entirely wood wool filled. I gave him his glass eyes but it is possible that his original eyes may have been boot buttons?. I feel he is most likely british made, possibly Farnell or Chad Valley? I have never seen another like him and would love to know more about him if anyone has any information. He is the first wheeled bear to join our hug and has quickly become one of my favourites, there is just something magical about him. He measures 18 inches long from nose to tail and is 12 inches tall.
