Sold (1930) Label 2 Corky £145

Corky" is such a fine old chap. English in origin, he is an early Merrythought bear dating to the 1930's. Although Merrythought dates back to the late 1800's, they didn't start making their bears until 1930. Corky is one of their early bears, still with original early label on his foot. Wonderful smiley face with glass eyes and embroidery nose and mouth and big ears. He still retains his original felt paw pads. Web stitching claws intact, label is good...Merrythought Hygenic Toys Made in England. He has a tubby little tummy, and I love his big feet and stubby, thick legs. He stands 17" tall and is soft stuffed throughout, except a little hard stuffing in his nose. Mohair has general thinning throughout with some small bare spots. His nose is a little worn . A really sweet looking bear. Corky is 16 inches, 41 cm top to toe and has 95% mohair covering.  A lovely bear.
