(1930) A Wishbone Button Ted £150. For Sale by Elizabeth Mimikellis

£150.00

Ted is a beautiful early 1930s Merrythought teddy bear. He has his amazing Merrythought Wishbone button in his ear and the original early label on his foot which reads "Merrythought Hygienic Toys. Made in England". He measures 20" tall. He is fully jointed, has his original paw pads and webbed claws . He is stuffed with kapok throughout, except his head, which is wood wool stuffed. He has clear glass eyes with painted backs and his nose and mouth are stitched. He has lost some mohair over the years and is a bit patchy in places, but this does not detract from his beautiful face and the fact that he still has his early identification. Merrythought only started making bears in the 1930s, and only used this label and button on early bears, so this is one of their first pieces. He has been well loved. Ted is in Greece and will need international shipping to come to the UK.
