(1915-20) Mr Smiles

Mr Smile is a Chad Smiles bears, one of the very first Chad bears made during their experimental period. There was a postcard of a smiling little girl, a smiling doll and a smiling Chad bear like this one, from which they were then known as Smiles bears. Two of those photos are shown. I am so lucky to have one. Mr Smiles is a very handsome and unusual brown bear, a bear with quite a character. He has glass eyes, replaced paws and pads. His mohair is in superb condition. Quite rare to find a Smiles bear of this colour particularly with the postcards. A good solid bear.
