Old Bear......

bear_original A few weeks back I bought this old bear who has a certain charm I just could not resist! Yes he does need a lot of TLC and I plan on doing this though not too much as I wouldn't like him to loose his charm. He is about 38cm tall in mohair and mainly stuffed with wood wool and a small amount of Kapok - has a non working growler - cotter pin joints. Poor thing is missing an eye  bear_sad  I am struggling a little here in identifying him as I can't even make up my mind if he is German or English  bear_rolleyes If anyone can be of help it would be very much appreciated  bear_original

What a beautiful old bear, looks like a Chad Valley. I am no expert but
used to restore old bears. He has been very well loved which adds to
his character.
