16" x 14' brown mohair teddy bear. Unknown maker.
Attic of elderly woman. Details unknown
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a cute teddybear. Such vintage soft toys are being offered at auction on a regular basis. This teddy appears to be in good condition without much wear or tear to the fur or the limbs.
The teddy bear has fur made of mohair. The teddy has fairly short limbs, circular feet and no hump on the back - this is typical of the mid to late 20th century teddy bears.
The less the teddy bear resembles a real bear and the more cuddly it looks the later it is.
I would date your teddy bear to be from the late 1950s-1970s and made in the US, however this is very hard to determine without any labels or marks on the teddy. During the 20th century a lot of companies produced soft toys and in particular teddy bears.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online toys auction, where I believe the teddy bear has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the sweet teddybear. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
