Description from user:

This bear is approx. 12" tall. It appears to have mohair fur, soft felt foot and paw pads, a sewn thread nose 'button' and resin eyes (?). There are metal discs at each joint and is movable. There is no 'mouth'. I've had it since birth (1957) and it was ostensibly passed down from my Mother who was born in 1920. I Believe she got it from her mother as a child.
