Item Overview

Description

A STEIFF LARGE-EYED BROWN-TIPPED GOLDEN TEDDY BEAR, jointed, mohair, large brown and black glass eyes, brown stitching, inoperative growler and FF button, 1920s --17in. (43cm.) high (some slight fading and thinning)

Notes

VAT rate of 5% is payable on hammer price and at 17.5% on the buyer's premium.
This stunning bear is very similar in style to the famous Happy, purchased from Sotheby's by Paul and Rosemary Volpp in 1989. Other similar bears have since appeared on the market, but none with this colour combination. What makes these bears especially appealling is their extra large glass eyes.
