So I had a particularly lucrative op shop run today, and found a bunch of neat things! Including a steiff mouse for $3 and this mohair bear for $5 which I can't quite place.
He's around 12" and the closest thing i can find to him is the large Gebruder bing bear photo that pops up when you search about them. He has no buttons, but a significant dent under his right arm where it feels like something round used to be there. He is in quite good shape, with some balding but it's quite even throughout the mohair so you don't really notice it much, and the colour is a very vibrant gold which makes me question the age as he . He is quite soft but does "crinkle" when you squeeze him, as though he has wood wool inside, no growler or hard cavities inside, glass eyes, vertical stitching on the nose and has a very closely shaved muzzle with an oddly wide head and ears right on the sides which caught my eye. He also seems to have a spot on his foot where a patch seems to have been removed potentially?
I really like him and will be keeping him either way, but I would love to know his make so any info would help!
