Rare 16" BMC c1907

Rare 16
This gorgeous BMC bear dates c1907 and has a good covering of apricot mohair and he also retains his label (this is a little faded). He has a wonderful expression, original felt pads with a few neat repairs and original glass eyes. He has professional repairs on his front torso which were done many years ago (more details/photos on request) but he remains in strong condition and they are extremely well done. Please enquire for more details on this wonderful rare bear who wears the antique jacket he came in and measures just over 16" tall

The Bruin Manufacturing Company was a briefly existing firm that established itself in New York City in 1907. After a trial period of stamping their trademark onto the foot, it was decided that a silky woven label with the initials "BMC" was a more permanent form of identification. The shoe button eyes were usually placed close together, with long pointed noses and ears set wide apart on the side of the head. These cuddly toys were made to a very high standard with good quality mohair and imported voice boxes from Germany. As the firm was only in production for two years, Bruin creations are extremely rare and in great demand.
