(1916) Soldier Bear. Harwin & Co.
Rare and wonderful antique teddy bear by British firm Harwin & Company. The factory in North London ceased in 1930 so very few of these bears survive. Harwin Soldier Bear measures 13" He is five way jointed, all joints turn albeit a bit stiffly and are firm. He is filled with wood wool. He has boot button eyes. His paws have been recovered, they are neat and are sturdy and strong. His pads are original, the replacements have been removed. Though not perfect, he is a rare bear & has the most wonderful expressive face.
