WELL LOVED MOHAIR BEAR – LIKELY AUSTRALIAN JOY TOYS – 11.5″ HEIGHT
This is a well loved vintage bear and most likely to have been made by Joy Toys here in Australia. He measures in height approximately 11.5″.
He is made from golden mohair despite he has been well loved and sparse in some places from lots of hugging. The head is fixed to the body which is typical of Australian bears from the 1950’s era. He is fully jointed.
His eyes appear to be original as is the nose stitching which has some stitching missing on the nose.
He is nicely stuffed with a combination of wood shavings or similar and soft filling. The ribbon around his neck has been added later.
Joy Toys bears from this era are just beautiful and lovely amongst any bear collection.
