SOLD £75 (1940) Label Marlon
SOLD 1940's Chad Valley teddy bear.'Marlon' is a lovely little Chad Valley teddy bear, standing at just over 12" from the tips of his toes to the tips of his ears. He is five ways jointed with all his joints working smoothly and he is stuffed with kapok in his body and wood wool in his head. His overall condition is quite good and he has retained almost all of his original features, apart from his amber and black glass eyes which are vintage replacements and suit him very well. He has rexine paw pads which are in fair condition with surface wear and he still retains the blue rectangular Chad Valley label on his left foot dating him to 1938-52. He has a decent covering of his blond mohair with some overall thinning and some small bare areas which are mostly around his snout but I would estimate he still retains about 90-95% coverage.
