A Schuco Ball Player clockwork teddy bear, With brown mohair, brown and black glass eyes, black stitched nose, mouth and claws, swivel head, jointed arms, felt pads, original keywind mechanism causing the bear to move round the ball 

Incredibly rare and cute Schuco wind-up soccer teddy bear - working!
what a unique find this small 14cm mechanical Schuco bear is
if you wind up the metal "Match" ball he will start to turn and teddy will start to dance
little ted has wire-jointed arms and is stuffed with excelsior
the paint on the soccer ball shows some slight wear and
he lost quite a lot of his yellow gold mohair
nevertheless he has a very sweet and appealing face
his shoe button eyes and black floss nose and mouth are original
teddy comes with wind-up key
he was made in 1920-1921 and is a very hard to find Schuco piece in all original condition
last photo is a 1921 Schuco catalogue picture seen in Cieliks Teddybär Lexikon / German Teddy Bear Encyclopedia
below his photo's there is a short video showing his moves
