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.
The teddy bear has fur made of plush. The teddy has short limbs, circular feet and no hump on the back - this is typical of the late 20th century teddy bears.
The earlier teddys resemble real bears whereas the later teddys are much more cuddly like your teddy bear.
I would date your teddy bear to be from the last part of the 20th century and probably 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.
