 Made by FADAP in the 1920s The majority of teddy bears which are sold in France were imported from Germany, until the limited supply caused by WW1 stimulated the establishments of French factories. Rivalling Steiff, metal button trademarks were sometimes used in the ear or on the body for identification. He is a good example of a Fadap bear with his stitched nose and Fadap expression, and his paws and pads with 3 claws on each.
