Need info on a 18 1/2 inch bear with straw stuffing. Not sure the age

May 31, 2006 2:40pm CST
I purchased the bear becaused he looks like a real bear( not baby face) like they did years ago. He is about 18 1/2 inches long light brown stiff hair ( I think mole hair?) stiching for the mouth but a rubbery like nose that is stiched on. He has gold and black eyes( not sure if they are glass or plastic). All four joints move very easy. He is stuffed with straw.If you think you may know what Co. and time period he is from please email me at and I will send you the pictures I have taken. Thank you so much L.B.

Any idea where (country if possible) it was made? More bears have been stuffed with foam for many years now whereas many years ago it was mostly kapok, straw or material. I wish I could help you a bit more but do not have enough knowledge of bears to even considering offering any opinion other than what I have said above. Good luck
