Diem (1950) Deitrich

Loved but very cute Diem character teddy bear. Circa 1950's
This hard to find Diem teddy bear stands at just over 13" tall and is five ways jointed
with all his joints working smoothly and is completely wood wool stuffed. You can see from the photos that he has been loved but he is still in original condition with all his original features intact apart from his nose and claw stitching which have worn away. 

There are bare patches on his body and limbs and a larger area on the side and back of his head but I would estimate he has retained about 65% coverage overall. He also has a small 1cm hole in the side of his head which you can see in the 4th photo and a smaller 2 mm hole in his right leg both of which could be easily repaired with a little careful darning if you wanted. Despite his loved condition, he is still a very sturdy little chap with bags of character and an open smiley expression and he would make a lovely addition to any hug.
