A cute vintage Merrythought bear. Established in 1930 Merrythought is one of the oldest and most prestigious of England’s toy manufacturers.This bear measures approx 26cm and is in nice aged condition adding to his appeal. He has orange and black plastic eyes and is made of a golden mohair plush that has started to wear in places. His paws are made from a velvet fabric that also show signs of wear. He has an adorable face with black stitched nose and mouth. He is fully jointed and has his original Merrythought label stitched to his foot. This bear is a collectors item only, it is not for children and should not be used as a toy.
