(1930) Harborne Magna Tom

1930s Antique Chad Valley Magna Bear (early Green Magna Series Harborne Label) Tom is an early Chad Valley MAGNA series antique bear with green embroidred "Chad Valley Harborne Magna Series" label to left foot dating him to circa 1930 (label is discoloured/hard to make out but lettering still recognisable). 21 inches in height, Tom has original glass eyes, these are now almost clear but would have had orange painted backs. He has good nose/mouth stitching and original cloth pads with old darned repairs. Lucky old Tom has received over 80 years of cuddles leaving him with balding and old darned repairs including two mends to back of around 2 inches each. His dark golden mohair is lightly grubby and there's markings to his tum. There's an old sewn lettering to one foot pad which reads "Tom". A very characterful early Chad Valley Magna bear wearing old lightly dusty romper suit.
