GORGEOUS VINTAGE AUSTRALIAN JOY TOYS MOHAIR BEAR – 17″
This is just the most gorgeous Joy Toys Bear and measures in length approximately 17″ not taking in to consideration his ears.
He is made from golden mohair despite he has been well loved and sparse in some places from lots of hugging.
His oil cloth paw pads are down to the material mostly now and he has some holes in his arm paw pads.
He is nicely stuffed with the head and torso appearing to be filled with wood shavings from the feel and the arms and legs soft filled. He can sit on his own and has the most endearing face. The glass eyes are original but his nose may have had some stitching touch-ups but not 100%.
I would say this bear is from around the 1940’s – 1950’s era.
Joy Toys bears from this era are just beautiful and lovely amongst any bear collection.
